Good morning, friends!
I am so happy to hear that you’re enjoying my chia pudding recipes. Luckily for you, I’ll be sharing more than just the one I shared with you yesterday. I’m on a bit of a chia pudding kick and am coming up with new creations daily, so there’s recipes coming at you all week! Make sure to let me know if you give any a try!
Today’s chia pudding recipe incorporates the tea I will be reviewing for today’s Tea Tuesday
This tea is a rooibos that DAVIDsTEA has been working on for years. They wanted to get the flavour just right and they finally did. With the perfect amount of cinnamon, ginger, and molasses, this tea tastes exactly like your favourite gingerbread cookie at Christmas.
The ingredients in this tea include rooibos, green rooibos, honeybush, cinnamon, currants, crystalized ginger, pineapple, safflower petals, and natural and artificial flavourings, which all contribute to making this tea absolutely perfect.
The dry smell of this tea is gingery, molasses-y, and somewhat sweet and when brewed, it’s a nice combination of molasses and ginger. This tea is on the sweeter side than spicy, but not too sweet. The level of sweetness is just right.
I am so happy this tea is a caffeine free tea because I can drink it all day long, even right before bed!
I enjoy this tea most hot and without any added sweeteners or milk, but it does make a fantastic latte. It also makes a fantastic chia pudding!
Gingerbread Chia Pudding with Cinnamon Spiked Greek Yogurt and Warm Pears
For the Gingerbread Chia Pudding:
1/4 cup boiling water
1 1/4 tsp gingerbread tea, bagged
3/4 cup almond milk
3 TBSP chia seeds
For the Cinnamon Spiked Greek Yogurt:
1 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
1/2 – 1 tsp ground cinnamon
For the Warmed Pears:
1 ripe pear, chopped
Begin by steeping the tea in the 1/4 cup of boiling water. Allow to steep for at least 30 minutes, so the flavour is strong. After 30 minutes or more, remove the tea bag and add almond milk and chia seeds to tea. Mix well and allow chia seeds to absorb the liquid for at least 30 minutes; however, for the best results I always allow my chia puddings to set overnight.
Once you’re chia has absorbed the liquid, the pudding has formed, and you’re ready to serve it, prepare your Greek yogurt by mixing it with the cinnamon and warm the chopped pear in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute.
When chia pudding, Greek yogurt, and the pear are all ready to be served, arrange your plate by spreading the Greek yogurt on one side of the bowl (shown above) and fill the remaining side of the bowl with the chia pudding. Top with the remaining warm pear down the middle, serve, and enjoy!
Does this tea sound good to you? Will you be trying this chia pudding recipe? I have made a lot of chia puddings lately and I think this one was my favourite of them all, so I hope you give it a try! If you don’t have the Gingerbread tea at home, you can use any type of cinnamon/ginger tea
See you tomorrow with another recipe!
