Tea Time #6

Tea Time with Justine (s)

I want to thank everyone for joining me for the Tea Time #5

We had 10 amazing Tea Time entries, I think this party needs to be booze time tea party or something like that as we are having a steady increase in liqour matter arriving, which does tend to amp up the fun factor! 🙂

If you didn’t see the entries there is a snippet below, but the InLinkz page can still be visited to blog hop you will find it here InLinkz Page Tea Time #5

I also wanted to say a Happy Blogging Anniversary to Lucile, apparently she will be coming with cake to celebrate yay 😀


Here are the last Tea Time party goers who my greatest thanks go out to

Andy Townend – who brought about eye catching photography and thoughtful words to ponder.

Andy Townend – he brought us some after the tea thoughts & our staple diet of liqour 😉

Sarah’s Little Kitchen – brought us the most amazing cake with espresso, I am not telling you what it is, go take a peek it’s yum!

Mara Eastern – brought us an even bigger staple of liqour to keep spirits high, excuse the pun.  Beautiful photography & words, go take a peek.

A New Life Wandering – brought us something made with chocolate and tahini.  It is something I am yet to make but will do, curious to know what it is?

Deb’s World – brought us the cutest tea time buddy, really, you must go and see what I am talking about.

Gluten Free, Lekker Food – brought us the most delicious looking apple sweetbread, it should be yum in my tum.

Musings of a frequently flying scientist – brought us one of my favourite alcohols, especially on a blistery night, want to know what it is?

Angle and Views – brought us some Icelandic views and treats, go take a peek.

Viaja – Last but not least we had some beautiful crockery from Viaja how lovely.

So I present my treats for the Tea Time #6 :-

Omega 3 protein recover chia seed pudding

Omega 3 protein recover chia seed pudding


2 Tbsp chia seed
250ml rice milk (can use Kako (coconut milk too)
1/2 banana mashed
punnet of raspberries
2 tbsp oat flakes (porridge oats)

As you can see I also topped them with heart shaped strawberries as wanted to give my Tea Time buddies a bit of Valentines, be it belated.


Mash up the bananas and raspberries. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and leave to settle for a minimum of 4 hours, I leave overnight.

I have also used frozen berries, really you can mix in whatever you enjoy the taste of.  If you wish to make it sweeter, one can add honey, unless your on the Low-FodMAP diet in which case you can add maple syrup or golden syrup.


Vanilla-Almond Chia (Breakfast) Pudding

Yields 2 servings

Prep time: 5 minutes
Soak time: 1-8 hours

The Skinny

Per serving (without fruit):

  • 309 calories
  • 20 g fat
  • 45 g carbs
  • 12 mg sodium
  • 29 g fiber
  • 15 g protein


2 cups unsweetened almond milk, homemade or store bought (see recipe for homemade almond milk below)
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (raw honey if not on a low FodMAP diet)
Seasonal fruit for topping (blueberries, peaches, figs and plums) – allowed fruit on Low FodMAP are:- Banana (small) Blueberries Cantaloupe Coconut Dragonfruit Grapefruit (1/4 only) Grapes Honeydew melon Kiwifruit Lemon Lime Orange Papaya Passion fruit Pineapple Raspberries Rhubarb Starfruit Strawberries Tangelo
Almonds or other nuts for topping – if on a low Fod-MAP diet then one can use the following nuts:- Almonds Chia seeds Flax seeds Macadamias Peanuts Pecans Pine nuts Pumpkin seeds Sesame seeds Sunflower seeds Walnuts


Benefits of Chia Seeds

The reason I used chia seeds is firstly because I am starting the FodMAP diet but also I had heard that they are a superfood and it is surprising in a small amount they pack quite a punch as seen below:

A 1 ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1, 2):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
  • They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.

1. Chia Seeds Deliver a Massive Amount of Nutrients With Very Few Calories

2. Chia Seeds Are Loaded With Antioxidants

3. Almost All The Carbs in Them Are Fiber

4. Chia Seeds Are High in Quality Protein

5. Due to The High Fiber and Protein Content, Chia Seeds Should be Able to Help You Lose Weight

6. Chia Seeds Are High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids

7. Chia Seeds May Improve Certain Blood Markers, Which Should Lower The Risk of Heart Disease and Type 2 Diabetes

8. They Are High in Many Important Bone Nutrients

9. Chia Seeds Can Cause Major Improvements in Type 2 Diabetics

10. Chia Seeds Can Improve Exercise Performance as Much as a Sports Drink

11. Chia Seeds Are Easy to Incorporate Into Your Diet

This information was gleaned from various online resources.

    OMG. It looks fabulous. Delicious. I may try this one.
    Your tea time is always gorgeous and you are a perfect hostess, managing to entertain tea and alcohol lovers graciously, not even getting drunk yourself. LOL.
    Curious of what our Aussie, Patagonian and Belgenglish friends will bring today to the tea room!
    Thank you for mentioning the anniversary. My blog is grateful and sends a huge hug with love your way.
    Sorry for once again forgetting to add the photo to your link. Oops. No punishment, ok. Its birthday day!

    I’m planning to participate this week if I can get a picture of what I had at a cafe last Thursday. After I ate it, I realized it would fit perfectly for this challenge. So on Thursday I will be going back and buying it again. I sure hope they have it!

          • February 17, 2015 at 10:50 PM

            I called. It was a valentine day special and they don’t have plans to make it any time in the near future. 😦

            It was a s’more tart. Do you have s’mores in London? Traditionally it is a campfire treat made with graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows toasted over the fire. This one was an upscale version of a tart with a graham cracker crust, a dark, rich, chocolate pudding filling and a melted marshmallow on top. It was SOOOOOO good.

            The alcohol can be seen through the blur in the picture, various bottles of spirits. The milk is represented by the figure of a cow at the top right which was floating above an automated milk dispenser outside a supermarket…
