Lavender & Rose Chia Pudding

Rose Lavender Chia Pudding

Digestive issues are definitely on the rise. I see so many symptoms that are related to the imbalance of the gut. Gut health is so extremely important for balancing hormones, skin health, digestion, thyroid balance and adrenal balance just to name a few.

I highly recommend that most of clients increase their fibre. Fibre is so important for regulation and digestion but really understated component to healthy eating. Chia is loaded with fibre that I love to see in a diet along with lots of leafy green vegetables of course. The other thing I love is that chia is loaded with nutrients. Chia contains magnesium, iron, antioxidants and calcium it contains omega 3 fatty acids that reduce inflammation.

It’s important to note that if you have not introduced chia into your diet before, start small, really small. I suggest 1 – 2 teaspoons a day and work your way up. I take around 3 tablespoons a day but make sure to hydrate well and I like to soak chia overnight but not necessary.

Coconut milk is a great source of fats that are easy to digest therefore are great for anyone dealing with digestive issues.

I used a blend of tea called Summer Garden from Neal’s Yard Remedies but I have also found amazing tea blends at The Tea Factory inlcuding rose and lavender. You can also make your own!

  • ½ cup canned full fat coconut milk (BPA free)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 ½ Tbsps. lavender & rose tea leaves
  • ¼ cup chia seeds

  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. raw honey
  • additional rose petals and lavender for serving
  • chopped pistachios, for serving


  1. Heat the coconut milk and almond milk in a small saucepan. Add the tea leaves to the milk and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes.
  2. Strain the leaves from the milk and add the chia seeds, vanilla, sea salt and honey. Stir to combine and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Stir again to prevent the seeds from lumping together.
  3. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate overnight. Garnish with extra rose petals or lavender. In the morning add a few tablespoons of hot water and stir to loosen the pudding and to warm it slightly.
  4. Garnish with dried rose petals, lavender and chopped pistachios.
