Coconut Chia Pudding Recipe

Chia pudding used to slightly scare me because the look of it reminds me of fish eggs. But after attempting to make chia pudding a few weeks ago (you might have seen on Instagram) I was sold and it’s now one of my favourite breakfasts!

Chia seeds have a ridiculous amount of fibre, high in protein and if not using cow’s milk it is a vegan snack/breakfast. After trying some recipes and experiments I have found coconut milk is the best for flavour and texture.

Recipe

Ingredients

1/3 cup chia seeds. The GreatValue Walmart brand is the cheapest I can find.

1 400 mL (13.5 oz) can of coconut milk.

Sweetener to taste also depends on the topping. I used 1/2 tablespoon of honey.

Toppings. I have used macerated peaches, blueberries, strawberries & raspberries. Toasted coconut is always a good choice as well. I also added granola.

Directions

Mix coconut milk with the seeds until all of the seeds have been soaked. Then let sit. I usually make this after dinner then it’s a great thick texture when I wake up in the morning. So over 12 hours. But it also seems to work after sitting in the fridge for about 4-5 hours. Add toppings and enjoy!

Piña Colada Smoothie Recipe

Piña colada smoothie is my current favourite. It’s a subtle flavour and very creamy. The coconut milk has healthy fats which are satisfying so it’s a good choice for breakfast. I posted a picture on Instagram the other day of my piña colada smoothie, here is the recipe for it!

Recipe

Ingredients

Makes about 3 servings.

  • 1 can of pineapple + the juice from it.
  • 1 medium-large banana
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup coconut yoghurt. Vanilla can also be used.
  • Toasted shredded coconut for topping
  • Granola or other toppings of choice

Instruction:

Put everything in a blender and blend until the pineapple looks like it’s all smooth. I put mine in the freezer for a bit before eating or use a frozen banana to get an ice-cream like texture. If you prefer more of a coconut taste, because it is quite subtle, more coconut milk can be added. The coconut on top really brings it out.
