I developed this pudding after experimenting with several batches and a couple different types of coconut milk and extracts. Today I wanted to share this fun snack with you!
Coconut Chia Pudding
1 can coconut milk (probably not Lite, so that you maintain a thicker texture)
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1-2 tablespoons honey
Berries (I use frozen mixed berries – my favorite: the raspberries)
What To Do:
Pour the coconut milk into a small bowl.
Add the chia seeds and stir well with a fork or whisk.
Add the vanilla extract, almond extract, and honey (I enjoy this recipe with closer to 2 T. of honey!). Stir well, until honey is evenly incorporated.
Divide mixture into small mason jars or other airtight containers. Seal well. Refrigerate the pudding overnight or at least for a few hours so it can thicken.
I serve this pudding with berries on top. If I’m packing it in my lunch for work, in the morning I put frozen mixed berries on top. Then the berries are thawed by midday and the pudding is lightly infused with berry flavors!
~ Makes about 3 cups of pudding.
This pudding is wonderful if you’re craving a little something sweet. It’s also great if you need something to fill you up and give you some protein so you’re ready for your day! Enjoy!
