I made this delicious pudding a couple of weeks ago, and kids loved it so much, I decided to make it again and share the recipe. Perfect colours for the festive season, and this bowl will be tonight’s dessert. A much healthier and lighter alternative to a creamy traditional pudding.

Serves 6
preparation time 45 min
Cooking time 10 min


Tapioca pudding:
1 cup sago pearls
3/4 cup water
1 can coconut cream 400g
2 tablespoons rice malt syrup
Raspberry sauce:
2 cups frozen raspberries
4 tbsps water
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup
4 tbsps chia seeds

1/4 cup of grounded pistachios for decoration.

Soak the sago pearls in enough water to cover them well for about 30 minutes. In the meantime start preparing the raw raspberry and chia sauce. Rinse the raspberries and blend on high speed with the water, once it’s all puréed add the syrup and chia seeds then blend again. Put aside in fridge.

Layer a bowl or individual cups alternatively with pudding and raspberry sauce,top with pistachios or any of your favourite toppings. Place in fridge for about an hour and enjoy.
