Coconut Chia Pudding

I’ve decided to turn my home into an all-inclusive resort. I’m cranking up the thermostat (warm island vibes!) and doing a few small things to pamper myself, starting with breakfast. This creamy Coconut Chia Pudding is the treat-your-self way to begin your day.

Coconut chia pudding is good for you, yet its rich texture gives it the indulgent “dessert for breakfast” vibe that I associate with vacation.

Made with chia seeds, coconut milk, pure vanilla extract, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup or honey, this healthy breakfast recipe is a mini escape. Top it with juicy fresh fruit or swirl in some jam. It will be a little break you can return to anytime you need it.

The basic ratios in this recipe are adapted from my chocolate Chia Seed Pudding. Like the original recipe, it’s rich and creamy, but today’s coconut version is vegan.

The pudding’s luscious texture is thanks to coconut milk. Have a can in your pantry? This coconut chia pudding is just what to make with it! The chia seeds create texture too. They plump into a tapioca-like “pudding” when soaked overnight.

You can enjoy this coconut chia pudding for breakfast or dessert, though I love it most for breakfast. One batch can last for four days in the refrigerator, so it’s an ideal make-ahead healthy breakfast recipe. Try it both ways, then pick your favorite! (more…)
