Sunny spring weather isn’t here yet, so I’m continuing my yellow food theme to keep my days brighter. This 2-ingredient vegan fruit pudding is a fun experiment I did a while ago for my kids who love store bought fruit yogurts. I wanted to make a more wholesome homemade simple & quick option for their yogurt cravings.
I’m always on the search for new snack ideas, as snacking is something I love to do in the afternoon when I – or my kids – need a pick-me-up. My go-to snacks are all kinds of puddings & parfaits, bread with avocado & hummus & veggies. I’ve also been craving fatty snacks (the good kind of fat) in the afternoon to keep my energy levels more stable. Will share a recipe related to this soon.
In the mean time, here are some other snack options:
My kids’ favorites
Snickers chia overnight oats when you’re craving something really sweet (one of the most popular recipes on the blog).
Creamy lemon and pomegranate chia pudding when you’re craving something fruity & creamy.
One of my favorites
Green summer chia pudding when you’re craving something a bit more healthier.
This yellow pudding is one of my favorites too as it’s so easy to make. The base consists of two main ingredients and I added some sweetener and turmeric to get the beautiful yellow color. If the pineapple you’re using is sweet you might not need sweetener at all 🙂 And of course the turmeric is totally optional, I just love to make my foods bright and yellow (as you probably noticed if you saw this cake).
I already shared this recipe in Finnish, with crunchy muesli toppings + berries. This time I’m going for a more elegant look with my piped coconut yogurt. And it kinda looks more like a dessert this way too, which is not a bad thing for a dessert lover 😉
