Coconut Chia Puddings

Ohhhh nomnomnom guys, this is just THE ULTIMATE chia pudding. I can’t get over how much love I carry in my heart (tummy?) for it. Chia is a healthy superfood product, if you’re new to it read up on it online. You can make awesome pudding with it, creating different flavors with milks & spices. Mix it all up together in a glass jar, shake a few times over the course of an hour and then just let it sit overnight in the fridge and eat away the next day.

I love mine made with coconut milk. Now, you might be concerned about the fat in coconut milk, but don’t. It is saturated fats which are easily burned by the body. What you could worry about is that most coconut milks are available canned only, but you can make your own coconut milk with 4 cups of water on 2 cups of unsweetened dry coconut flakes (blended, strained & squeezed through a cheese cloth).

Anyhow, let’s give you guys some recipes. The first one is going to be for a light colored, creamy coconut chia pudding, I call it ‘The Ultimate’ as it is so easy but rich in flavor and texture. The second is going to be a layered ‘Protein Chia Breakfast Jar‘.
