Strawberry and Coconut Chia Pudding

This chia pudding recipe is a cream delight with strawberries and coconut milk.  A delicious start to any day or even would make a great dessert.

I normally use almond milk in my Chia puddings, but this time tried coconut milk.   It was lovely and creamy.  A great version of strawberries and cream for breakfast!  Or a dessert.  I often have chia puddings for breakfast but this can make a lovely dessert option too.  Chia seeds are gluten and grain free but one tablespoon of the little seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk.  More Omega 3 than salmon and more antioxidants than blueberries!  They give you energy and are also great for weight loss as they absorb about 12  times their size in liquid.  So will expand and keep you full as well as being nutritious.  They also keep your blood sugar levels at a sensible level.   They are one of the most versatile superfoods.

The best thing about Chia puddings is that you throw the ingredients in a jar, shake them to mix, leave in the fridge overnight and voila! An easy breakfast.  Or dessert.  Or midday treat.

INGREDIENTS

2 tblspn chia seeds

1 cups coconut milk

    Though some say coconut milk can be fattening, I really love coconut milk. Especially the tropical feeling I get from having it in the winter 🙂 I’m going to try this tonight.

    Chia with coconut milk – now that’s brilliant. I have tied it with soy milk, but I’m not really a fan of soy milk, so was a bit put off. I’m going to have another go with this version. Thank you Diva!

      Hope you like it! It’s very creamy and feels wicked. I love it when something so good tastes like it should be so bad for you!
