I have been wanting to make coconut chia seed pudding for ages, and now I’m wondering what took me so long. What an EASY and yummy treat! Chia seeds, a well-known ‘Super Food,’ are packed with fibre, omega-3’s and protein. Really, a Dietitian’s dream. They have a gel-like quality that gives them natural thickening properties, with no cooking needed.
This pudding takes a mere 5 minutes to whip up (ok, a bit more time to set up) and I promise that nobody will even know how healthy it is.
- 1 can lite coconut milk (398 ml)
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. coconut extract
- 2 heaping Tbsp. honey
- dash of nutmeg
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- In a medium bowl, stir together the coconut milk, vanilla extract, coconut extract, honey and nutmeg. Stir in the chia seeds.
- Refrigerate for an hour (or longer) and serve.
- Top with granola, berries, pineapple or toasted coconut…sky is the limit!
So going to make this … love anything coconut & with chia seeds?? Sounds awesome!
What exactly does the simmering of the coconut milk do? All the other chia pudding recipes I’ve seen just stir everything together and refrigerate.
I found that there was some coconut oil that solidified, so heating it melted the oil to make it smoother.
Hi! How long does the pudding keep for? Is this something I could whip up and eat for a few days? Thanks!
Hi! I would say it’s safe to keep in the fridge for a couple of days just using general food safe guidelines!
