Well, shoot.. where on earth did time fly this past week? The Maldives? I have had this gorgeous recipe done and ready for you but then. Let’s just say that quite literally life happened and the actual post writing date continued to get pushed aside. So here I am, Monday morning with a candle right next to the computer and a cup of herbal chai on the other. It’s not that life stopped happening in some way (luckily) but it seems I found a space to get a few loving words out to you. Ahhh, I smile when I think of where this reaches you, are you at work? Still sleeping? On a big adventure somewhere? What ever is going on in your life, you are creating miracles as you go. Be aware of that grand ability that you have in every moment. Gosh, you ROCK!

Be the wind that takes this world by storm!

Fun & Fabulous Facts

The launch of the Nordic Superfood Mix on Sunday (ma b-day!!!!!) definitely holds a big part of me not writing this post until now. Geez, so many tings to be arranged and lovingly put together. Surprises to all that PRE-ORDERS, shipping calculation and final touches. You name it, I’m on it. In the mean time I have to keep myself nourished and what better way to do that then upping my intake of Nordic superberries (in my freezer, lovingly handpicked last season) plus a teaspoon of the Nordic Superfood Mix. Honestly, I bet those berries were just hanging out in the freezer waiting to be transformed into this antioxidant jam – so delicious I could have proposed. To myself.

The glorious part of Nordic Superberries is that the nordic light actually makes the level of antioxidants rise because of our long summer nights, ain’t that fantastic? Which ever berry you’ll end up using will of course be smack packed of antioxidants, the amazing workers neutralizing free radicals in your body and in doing so, fighting both inflammation, the sprouting of chronic diseases and calming an overall distressed body. Plus, remember health and beauty boosts travel in pair.

This recipe is a treat,  jam packed with the goodies that makes you shine!

Vanilla Pudding w Antioxidant Jam & Nordic Superfoods

Breakfast, snack, dessert, treat. Whatever or whenever you feel like a healthy and sweet flavor explosion – this is the perfect choice. Ridiculously easy to prepare, filling and so boosting it’s nutty to even think of it all. Do you need any more persuasion? I didn’t think so either. Ps. the jar of left over jam is a perfect topping with some Nordic Superfood mix on your Raw ice cream, sandwich or Greenylicious Super Smoothie.

Vanilla Chia Pudding
2 big / 4 small bowls

3 tbsp chia seeds
1 1/3 cup unsweetened oat milk / almond milk
1/3 tsp pure vanilla
1/ tsp ground cardamom

1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and let sit in the fridge overnight, stir one last time before going to bed.
2. In the morning this will all have turned into a beautiful pudding. Done! 

Antioxidant jam
makes a heaping cup of jam

1 cup mixed berries (I used mostly black currants and some raspberries)
7 midsized dates, pitted (if using medjool dates 4-5 will be enough)
1 tsp aged balsamic vinegar (optional but truly incredible)
1 1/2 tsp Nordic Superfood mix

1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender like vitamix and blend thoroughly.

Arrange
Scoop up some pudding in a beautiful bowl, top with the jam and some additional berries. Enjoy and get swept away by the power of Mother Earth.

    When on my walks this week, I want to stop and absorb a drop of water, a leaf, or the dance of the river instead of simply walking past and not be present.

    I AM present!

    Loooove chia pudding! Endless possibilities! Beautiful photos, I will definitely give this a try soon.. although berries aren’t in season here, so might modify a bit or have to use frozen organic berries (sometimes you juuuust need berries in the winter, guilty I know aha!) Keen to try your nordic superfood mix one of these days!! Will be saving my pennies (being a fulltime student is tough on the bank account). On the agenda for today, a final exam, and later this week starting a brand new course, but I’ll be making a fantastic comforting dinner tonight in celebration after my exam, and getting some leisurely reading in unrelated to school. Thank you again for everything you do Elenore! xox

    Your question came at a good time for me, because I’m sending in my application to spend the rest of my high school years at a five-day boarding school! I am very scared and very excited at the same time, but I am confident that it’s the place for me.

    Love your Chia Pudding recipe! I usually use berries in mine as well but I’ve heard citrus fruits also work nicely for something a bit different.

    What’s in the Nordic Superfood mix that you used in the jam? It certainly looks yummy whatever it is :)

    Thanks!

    Hei Elenore, I looove the pudding idea and will definitely try it! I read your post while having a serious chocolate craving, so I turned it into a chocolate pudding which is now sitting in the fridge, waiting to be devoured, but when I’ve gulped that one down I’ll give your superfood version a go :-)

    Kjempefin blogg forresten, gratulerer!

    Where do you buy Nutritional yeast in Sweden? and what is the translation of Nutritional yeast in Swedish? :)

      Hi Isabelle, it’s called ”Näringsjäst” but I actually order it online to get hold of the organic kind which I have not yet seen in Swedish healthfood stores.

    So… For a few months now I’ve been looking for a healty jam that the kids would accept.

    Tried yours this Saturday and every single one (there’s five of them, age 5-11) not only accepted but cheered! :-)

    They now accept *only* your jam, because it’s so berry-dense and perfectly ”lagom” sweet.

    Thank you ever so much, and good luck with the store and everything!

    Love,
    Åsa
