Oftentimes, we can get bored of eating the same food and recipes over and over again. This chia pudding coconut milk recipe is a great way to add in some variety to your life. And it tastes delicious! Not to mention it takes 5 minutes prep time and then let the chia seeds soak and work their magic.

WHAT ARE CHIA SEEDS

Chia seeds are tiny seeds that originated in Central America. Chia seeds have a compound within them that allow them to absorb water. They can soak up 8-10 times their weight in water in just 15 minutes. The chia seeds swell up and make for a great thickening addition to smoothies and this chia pudding with coconut milk. Chia seeds also have protein.

Since chia seeds absorb water, they can help you stay fuller longer.

WHY COCONUT MILK

In this chia pudding recipe, coconut milk is a great liquid to use. It’s creamy and a great alternative to dairy milk. Coconut milk comes from the white flesh of coconuts. Coconut milk is found often in South East Asia.

HOW TO MAKE CHIA PUDDING COCONUT MILK

Combine cacao/cocoa powder, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt in a bowl. Stir with a spoon to combine. Add the coconut milk and stir.

Add the chia seeds and stir again. Let the chia pudding mixture stir for five minutes and stir once more.

Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours to create the chia pudding texture.
