Rooibos Chia Pudding

Rooibos tea (or red tea) is originally from South Africa, it goes really well mixed with orange or vanilla flavours or as a base for a comforting cup of chai. as it’s caffeine free it makes a great bed time tea and is suitable for children.

I have used it here to make a quick and easy chia pudding (because I haven’t posted one of those in a while!) – all you need to do is make up your strong cup of tea then leave everything to soak. No cooking even involved. 

Rooibos Chia Pudding
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1
  • 1 heaped tsp rooibos tea or 1-2 teabags
  • ⅔ cup hot water
  • ⅓ cup soy milk
  • 2.5 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 tsp stevia (I use Natvia)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • yoghurt or coconut yoghurt to layer
  • fresh fruit
  1. First, place your tea in a tea strainer (if using loose leaf) then pour over the boiling water. Leave to brew for 10-15minutes or so - it should look rather deep red and should have cooled down to be only warm.
  2. Remove the tea strainer/teabags from the tea then pour into a jar. Add in the chia seed, milk, stevia and vanilla and give it all a shake. Leave for 10 minutes then give a shake again. Let soak for another hour or overnight until thick and all the liquid has been absorbed by the chia seeds.
  3. Layer with yoghurt and fresh fruit then serve with a fresh cuppa rooibos. Enjoy x
