Coconut Chia Pudding

Print

Normally my day starts with a big bowl of porridge, but now summer has finally arrived, I needed something just as tasty and filling, but not hot! I had a packet of chia seeds in my cupboard for about 3 months before I took the step and tried something out!…now I must eat it at least twice a week! Super quick, super easy and most importantly, super tasty! I have this for breakfast, but it’s really good as a dessert or a healthy snack. Absolutely full of protein and healthy fats to keep you going through the day.

Further Food Commentary:

It can be difficult to get enough protein in breakfast. Chia seeds are not only full of protein, but are thought to have one of the greatest antioxidant powers found in any food. Make-ahead recipes are some of my favorites because I know I’ll have something healthy ready to start my day—in this case, tons of calcium and vitamin A!

    I made this today and it was DELICIOUS! So simple, but the coconut milk really gives the pudding a thick, creamy texture. The vanilla was definitely my favorite touch though. I ended up eating mine on top of a smoothie bowl – it was definitely heavenly!
