Chocolate, Coconut & Raspberry Chia Pudding

chocolate-raspberry-chia

Chia seeds are a great superfood.  They are rich in omega-3, antioxidants and many minerals. Higher in calcium than milk, and high in fibre.

Pudding for breakfast? Don't mind if I do..

  I wanted to start incorporating these little power seeds into my diet and now have a pudding for breakfast!  Who would have thought the phrase breakfast pudding was healthy?!   The great thing about this is that it is very filling and will keep you full.  Just make sure you drink plenty of water as they are high in fibre and absorb a lot of water.

The desiccated coconut gives this Chia pudding a great texture.

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.

INGREDIENTS

2 tblspn chia seeds

1/2 cups coconut milk  (or almond milk)

1 tblspn cocoa powder

1/4 cup raspberries

1/4 cup desiccated coconut

dash of stevia

    I’m so excited to try this for breakfast tomorrow – I’ve been finding breakfast difficult when I can’t fall back on toast and cereal. Do you have a chia pudding type breakfast every morning?

      Delighted you love it too…a perfect breakfast with no cooking too! I have them most mornings during the week when I do not have time to cook before dashing out the door to work. My favourite is the chocolate one though! Tried it with cinnamon the other day..very nice!

        It was delicious. I swapped the raspberries for strawberries and forgot the coconut – I think I’ll put that in tomorrow. My husband even liked it – so I think we have a winner for breakfast when we don’t have time. Thanks for the idea and recipe!
