Tropical Coconut Chia Pudding

This very delicious pudding was created on the fly the morning after I made my new favorite cake. I had coconut milk leftover, and never one to waste coconut milk (I love all things coconut-y), I figured I’d put it to good use. By pouring it over a few tablespoons of chia seeds and then adding mango. Hence, the tropical vibe of this pudding. It was as wonderful as I thought it would be, plus energizing, and filling. This pudding is my new favorite breakfast-on-the-fly. I rummaged around my fridge and added almonds and cacao nibs (little pieces of raw cacao – the plant that makes chocolate). Besides the mango, I had some frozen raspberries, which I defrosted, and then added, plus a tiny pinch of flaky sea salt. The mango really worked well with the coconut milk, as would passion fruit (garandella) or papaya. If you’re looking for a quick, ageless breakfast, chia seeds – high in protein, fiber, and omega-3s – soaked in a nut milk, coconut milk, kefir, or even water, work!

Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  2. ⅓ to ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk (from a very well shaken 13.5-ounce can)
  3. ¼ cup raw almonds
  4. 1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs
  5. Half a small mango, diced
  6. ¼ berries of choice
  7. Pinch of flaky sea salt
Instructions
  1. In a bowl add the chia seeds and coconut milk, stir to combine. The chia seeds take 10 to 15 minutes to absorb the liquid and become pudding like. If you want a looser pudding, add more liquid or water, stir and allow another 5 minutes to absorb the liquid.
  2. Top with fresh mango and berries. Garnish with almonds and cacao nibs. And sprinkle a tiny bit of flaky sea salt.
  3. Eat immediately or save for later. Refrigerate if making the night before.
Notes
  1. If mornings are really hectic for you, soak your chia seeds in coconut milk the night before, refrigerate, add your fruit, nuts, and cacao, and you have breakfast on the go!
