‘Spiru-Fig’ Overnight Chia Pudding

Chia and Spirulina Pudding


“I light a candle
  In the garden of love
  To blind the angels
  Looking down from above
  I want, I need
  The fruit of your pine
  It tastes so bitter sweet
  Cause you’re better than wine“*

Figs are the winners of my best-shaped, best-taste, better-texture and better-colour fruit award. Besides the fact that they are delicious they make very attractive and irresistible dishes. I just can’t resist them – they are my absolute “dirty little secret”.

Biologically speaking a single fig is a syconium containing over 1,000 tiny fruits and there are hundreds of varieties of the common fig ranging in colour from purple-black to yellowish-green – Well, let me tell you: I LOVE THEM ALL!

So, here’s another crazy recipe made with figs and spirulina that even Cookie (my 4 year old feline) seems to like (Better than catnip he tells me!)

The combination of the fig with this incredibly good for you organism (spirulina – often referred to as blue-green algaeis) is just perfect. It is loaded with nutrients that can have powerful effects on your body and brain and it’s actually quite amazing how nutritious it is. A single tablespoon (7 grams) of dried spirulina powder contains 4 grams of protein (well it’s quite fascinating indeed as the same amount of steak contains only 1.75 grams of protein…Food for thought, right?!) !

A deliciously nutritious morning pudding powered with good ingredients such as fig, spirulina and chia seeds – amazing taste and irresistible colours.

Prep Time

Prep Time
10 min
  1. 4 tbsp of chia seeds
  2. 1 cup/ 200ml of almond milk
  3. 1 tsp of maple syrup
  4. 4 tbsp of any dairy-free yogurt (I used almond one)
  5. 1 tsp of spirulina
  6. 1 or 2 season figs, sliced
Favourite toppings
  1. More figs or any other fresh fruits and cereals
  1. Prepare it the night before: place the chia seeds and maple syrup in a jar and then pour the milk in. Stir everything together before placing a lid on the jar. Keep refrigerated overnight (6 to 8 hours) - During this time the liquid will be absorbed and the pudding will form a jelly-like consistency.
  2. In the morning - mix the spirulina with the yogurt and pour the mixture on top of the pudding in the container.
  3. Add the sliced figs (as many as you can fit in your jar) and top it up with any other fruit or cereal of your choice.
  4. Just take the jar with you to work, gym, school or even eat it on your commute!
