Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

  • Peaches: So that I can make this pudding all year round, and because of convenience I tend to use canned peaches in this recipe. You could of course use fresh peeled and stoned peaches if you have access to them.
  • Milk: I use cow's milk when I make this recipe. But this recipe works just as well vegan with any dairy-free milk. Almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk and coconut milk all work great.
  • Vanilla extract: I love the flavor-enhancing properties of vanilla, it brings out the peachiness in this recipe.
  • Chia seeds: I tend to use white chia seeds in this recipe, as it helps keep the pudding looking peachy. Black chia seeds work just as well but the colour of the pudding may look a little grey.
  • Maple syrup: Depending on your palate (and the sweetness of the peaches you are using) you may not need the maple syrup, or you may need a little more. Taste the batter before refrigerating and adjust the sweetness if needed. Honey can also be used as a sweetener if everyone eating the pudding is going to be over one year of age.

How To Make This Recipe Suitable For Baby-Led-Weaning

Ultimately this peach chia pudding is suitable for baby-led weaning. It is a blended chia pudding so has a smooth mousse-like texture.

Tips & FAQs

Here is how you can make these peach blended chia pudding perfectly every time!

  • Store your peach chia puddings in a sealed container in the fridge for up to five days.
  • To save time you can skip the step of portioning the pudding mixture into separate jars. You can store it in one large jar or airtight container in the refrigerator and just scoop out what you need when you need it with a clean spoon.
  • If you want to increase the protein content of this pudding further you can substitute the milk for Greek yogurt, add a scoop of your favourite protein powder or you can add a scoop of skim milk powder.
  • If you wish to increase the energy content of this pudding you can use 50:50 milk and cream or add a spoonful of your preferred nut butter.
  • My kids like their chia pudding to have a texture similar to custard. If you would like a thicker texture you can increase the amount of chia seeds used from three to four tablespoons.
Will blended chia seeds still thicken?

It does not matter whether chia seeds are added whole or blended into a pudding they will still retain their gelling properties and thicken a pudding. So if you don't like the texture of chia seeds try a blended chia pudding instead.
