1Tgreen tea powderMatcha, optional, for color
4cupsAlmond MilkVanilla, unsweetened
2TSplendaTruvia, or a few drops Stevia
10small glasses or containers
In a medium bowl, mix the Chia seeds with milk, and 2 T Splenda if using, cover and place in the refrigerator (NOTE - Mixture is supposed to thicken as it stands, but if the Chia pudding is too thick, add a little more milk to thin).
Wash the strawberries, remove the stems, and slice, reserving the juice in the bowl as you slice. Sprinkle with a bit of Stevia or Splenda, cover and set aside.
Rinse the Kiwi's, dry with a paper towel, and slice the Kiwi's into a bowl, and set aside.
Wash the Blueberries and place on paper towels to dry.
Assemble the cups of pudding:
Remove the pudding from the refrigerator, spoon a couple of T of chia mixture to the bottom of the containers.
Spoon the strawberry juice evenly into the cups and stir to make the pudding pink. Place three or four slices of strawberries on top of the pudding.
In a small dish, add about 1 cup of pudding and place half of the Mandarin oranges in the bowl, along with the juice from the can. Smash the oranges into the pudding, which will turn the pudding a light orange color. Place even amounts of the pudding and mashed oranges into the containers, and top evenly with the remaining oranges.
In a small bowl, place 1 cups of the Chia pudding, and several slices of the Kiwi, and mash them into the pudding. Mix in Matcha if using. Place the pudding evenly in the containers, on top of the orange layer, and place remaining Kiwi - chopped, evenly in containers on top of green layer of pudding.
Place half of the blueberries in the remaining pudding, and mash them into the pudding, creating the blue/purple color for the final layer of the pudding cup. Place the blue/purple pudding evenly in the containers, and top with remaining blueberries. Serve and enjoy!
NOTE: We used 6 - 8 ounce containers for the pudding cups. If you want a brighter color, simply add more mashed fruit and fruit juice to the pudding. You can also add natural food coloring if you prefer really bright colors. If you prefer, you can mix the pudding and the fruits to be mashed along with the fruit juice in a blender or food processor, instead of mashing the pudding/fruit by hand.
Makes approximately 10 six to eight ounce servings.
