Witches Brew Breakfast Pudding

I had a history of choosing the same Halloween costume year after year when I was a kid.

Did you, too?

I was a princess, then a queen, Cinderella… well, you get the idea. Royalty was kind of my thing.

My sister on the other hand liked to be scary characters a witch, goblin, ghost, axe murderer…

While I never enjoyed being any of those scary things, I did enjoy eating spooky Halloween food.

Out of all the Halloween recipes I’ve helped my Mom make, enjoyed at school parties and made for my friends, this recipe for witches brew is, by far, the funnest to eat.

It totally looks like bubbles, doesn’t it? Ha! Too fun.

I’ve been enjoying breakfast pudding every morning since I shared the recipe back in June. Heck, I even made a huge batch and took it camping with us this past summer!

This pudding will keep your insides smiling (rrr witch crackling in this case).

And really, with a breakfast like this in front of you, you’ll be smiling ear to ear, too!

Digestion stimulating breakfast that will make any witch happy!
  • 1 tablespoon pepita seeds, roughly ground
  • Dab of coconut nectar, honey (not vegan) or any other type of liquid sweetener
  • ½ cup non-dairy yogurt
  • 1 over-ripe banana
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed, ground
  • 2 tablespoon flax oil
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 30 green grapes
  1. Ground flax seeds, then pepita seeds. Set ground pepita seeds aside on a plate.
  2. Prepare serving dishes by dabbing a knife in some coconut nectar and running it along the edge of a bowl and flipping it over into the ground pepita seed mixture to create a rimmed bowl effect. Set aside.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except grapes to a blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Stir in grapes. Do not blend grapes.
  5. Drop into prepared dishes and serve.

    You can use pre-ground flax seed for this recipe, it just wont yield the same health benefits as fresh ground flax seed (the nutrients deplete over time so it’s best to ground your flax seed yourself. I use a $20 coffee grinder to grain small amounts of nuts, seeds, grains and spices. Such a great tool to have in a healthy kitchen!

    Flax oil is another sensitive recipe, but well worth taking care of. Make sure that you purchase an oil that’s been refrigerated and in a dark bottle. Store in the fridge at all times!

    Add these ingredients, along with a handful of spinach, yogurt, lemon juice and banana to your blender.

    Blend and set aside.

    Rim your bowls with whatever you have handy. Honey, agave, whatever.

    It doesn’t have to be perfect either, in fact the more messy it is the better. You’re making a caldron!

    Stir the grapes into the brew…

    And portion out into your prepared cups.

    Crackle a couple of times…

    and consume.

    1. I love this recipe!! When we visited some friends in Atlanta a little while back they made us your breakfast pudding, and I have been addicted ever since!!!!! Love this take on it, so festive!!! :)

    2. This sounds so tasty, but don’t you think that bird is a little close to your pudding!? Eeeek!!!

    3. Great ideas! I love how the grapes make it look like a bubbling green brew! Wouldn’t kids just go nuts if it were served up in some mini cauldrons?! I wonder if they sell mini cauldrons in the store – so fun! Looking forward to some more awesome halloween recipes from you! (:

    4. What is the purpose of the “over ripe” banana? Why does it have to be over ripe? Is it part of the health benefits? I cannot have banana so I am trying to see if I will be altering the health benefits by replacing it with something else.Thanks!

      • Hi Chris – I like using over-ripe bananas for my breakfast pudding because I find it’s easier on my digestion. Not only that, but I find they taste a bit better. I’ve made this breakfast pudding with all sorts of fruit. It doesn’t need to be banana. Another great option is just using a flavored yogurt instead of banana. Apricot, blueberry, peach, strawberry, it’s all good!

    5. Such a simple but beautiful pudding. Looking at the pictures I couldn’t guess what the green balls were. I love the photos. So colorful and creative. I am wondering what is coconut nectar because I have not heard of it. Is it the juice? I am going to try this healthy recipe. Thank you!

      • Thanks, Sridevi! Coconut nectar is the sap, it’s sweet like honey but is vegan. Feel free to use whatever liquid sweetener you have on hand. Enjoy!

      • Oh great! I’d love to know how they like it. I had kids in mind when I thought of how I could make healthy bubbles!

    6. This is just too cute, Leanne! As a Halloween “non-liker”, I usually pass on all the creepyfied recipes that circulate endlessly all over the blogosphere at this time of year.

      But this one… it’s just amazing. I love how the grapes make it look like the brew is actually bubbling heavily and about to spill over. And, it’s also super healthy, so definitely something that I would enjoy eating.

      Thank you for not adding any “fake” blood to this. I’ve already seen more than I can take…

      Your spiders though, they really give me the creeps. I won’t be adding any to mine if I ever make this! Never had one, don’t really want to either… ;)

    7. I was thinking that you could add a couple black grapes peeled to look like eyeballs are floating in it too

    8. Oh my gosh! I loooove blending spinach into sweet things! It’s a great way to sneak such a powerful veggie into my hubby. (I swear it’s like feeding a three-year-old, except one who only ever wants pizza and Macdo.)
      I remember dressing up as Peter Pan for years when I was a kid. Even when I grew out of my costume, and I was 15, I still wanted to be Peter Pan. I would still dress up as Peter Pan, but I don’t wear short shorts and it just wouldn’t be the same with bermuda length. *sigh* Now I’m trying to get a costume together for Amy Pond or the TARDIS, since I have red hair and my husband has a suit and bow tie reminiscent of the Doctor. A good costume is one I’ll wear for years because the story behind it make me that happy.
