A lot of moms and folks are searching for fun and healthy Halloween food ideas right now. How much fun would it be to surprise a kiddo with one of these Halloween-themed chia puddings for breakfast or dessert? I don’t have kids, but I’m kind of a kid at heart. Plus, I love playing with food!

This fun layered chia pudding is one of the eight healthy Halloween snacks I shared recently, but I wanted to give you the exact recipe in case you want to make it for yourself.

Natural Food Coloring

Using all-natural food coloring is really important. And, you can make natural food coloring using real foods. For the black layer of this healthy Halloween treat, I used activated charcoal powder. The orange layer is made by mixing ground turmeric and beet powder.

In order to add the natural food coloring to the layers, I found these special white chia seeds that seemed to absorb the color really well, as opposed to regular black chia seeds.

Recipe Steps

Step One

To make the black and orange layered pudding, place ¼ cup white chia seeds in two glass bowls.

Step Two

Add the food coloring (orange in one, black in the other) to each bowl and then pour the almond milk on top. Use two separate spoons to gently mix the ingredients together.

Step Three

Add the honey or maple syrup and stir again. Let the chia pudding sit for at least 10 minutes before giving it another stir. The pudding will continue to thicken over time.

Step Four

Carefully layer the pudding into small glass jars. Serve cold or at room temperature.
