How to make the blueberry compote for lactose-free chia pudding?
In a small saucepan, combine blueberries and coconut sugar, then place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle boil, stirring occasionally. This helps soften the blueberries and release their natural juices. Let it simmer for about 7 minutes until the blueberries are soft and the texture has thickened slightly. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the blueberry compote cool for a few minutes. Once the blueberry compote has cooled, it is ready to layer with your lactose-free chia pudding.
How long will lactose-free blueberry chia pudding last?
If you have leftovers or want a convenient grab-and-go breakfast option, this blueberry chia pudding can typically last for 3-4 days when stored properly in the refrigerator. Store pudding and compote separately in an airtight container or jar and mix it whenever you are ready to enjoy it. Before serving, give it a gentle stir. This step ensures that all the flavours and textures are evenly distributed, giving you the optimal taste and texture experience for your breakfast.
