Mermaid Chia Seeds Pudding (Pitaya Dragon Fruit & Butterfly Pea Flower Tea)

Are you enjoying the Fall weather?  I'm loving the cooler temperature and the fact that I actually needed a jacket in the morning! If you've been following me on Instagram and my YouTube Channel, you probably have seen this Mermaid Chia Seeds Pudding that I shared a while ago!  Sorry for the delay in posting this blog post and recipe.  The weather was still super hot when I created this recipe!  But nevertheless, it's still a delicious recipe, even in this Fall weather.   




Check out my YouTube video tutorial above, if you haven't done so.  You'll see this gorgeous Mermaid Chia Pudding is really easy to put together.  You can prepare it the night before and it's ready for you in the morning as breakfast.  But I personally enjoy this as a quick snack or "dessert" in the afternoon more than as a breakfast item.  Yes, it's sweet enough as a dessert, yet it's still healthy and good for you.  The pink bottom layer is make with whole milk (you can substitute with almond milk, or soy milk if you like), Chia Seeds, a touch of honey for sweetness, and this gorgeous Dragon Fruit Powder that makes it pink.  It's packed with vitamins and anti-oxidant!  I'll list the product link at the end of the post for your reference.   





The upper blue-ish and purple-ish layer is made from Butterfly Pea Flower tea. It's also a vitamin and anti-oxidant rich ingredient that will make you feel beautiful from the inside out after enjoying it!  I love pretty food that also have such health benefit.  But since I'm not a doctor or nutritionist, please don't hold me accountable for that.  You can google it and read more for yourself if you're interested.  The original color of the Butterfly Pea Flower Tea was blue.  After adding the honey, it changed to this gorgeous purple-ish color because of the acid.  





October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I'll be wearing pink this month to raise awareness.  Hm....maybe I'll share more pink food and recipes too!  If you want to read more about Brest Cancer Awareness Month, here's the post that I shared last year:

Just this morning, I heard on the news that Beyoncé's Father, Mathew Knowles, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer!  This horrible disease not only affect women, but men as well.  I encourage you to do a regular self check because early detection is important and can save lives!  Check out my last years post on details and symptoms to look for.

Until next time, please take care!
