I believe most mommies are very well informed on how to introduce variety of food to their little ones, and what to stay away from until a baby reaches a specific age. There have been huge debates regarding the list of foods that might trigger allergic response, which include cow’s milk, eggs (particularly egg whites), nuts, peanuts, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish. Some say to avoid oranges (acidity), berries, coconut based products etc. However, since Arthur is the same size as a one year old our paediatrician gave us the go ahead on expanding his diet, which got me all excited to try out some superfoods. I still am very careful with each and every ingredient, but so far he hasn’t had a reaction to anything.
This recipe is just ideal for hot summer days and will be loved by children as well as adults! It has no added sugar, no dairy and tastes just like ice cream when made with frozen fruit.

2 tbsp Chia seeds
A cup of coconut milk
1 ripe banana (fresh or frozen)
A cup of frozen mixed berries ( I used raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants. You can use fresh berries of your choice)
1 tbsp coconut water (optional)
Add a cup of coconut milk to 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. Leave it overnight in the fridge. In the morning blend the frozen banana, mixed berries and a tablespoon of coconut water (I like mine a bit more liquidly. You can skip it if you prefer a thicker consistency) in the food processor. Add your berry blend to the chia seed pudding. Feel free to add some fresh fruit and berries on top. I slightly warm up Arthur’s portion 🙂
Hope you will love it as much as we do!
