Coconut Chia Pudding

I’m always looking for easy homemade breakfast and snack options that are nutritious and that the kids and I both like—this Coconut Chia Pudding is a favorite option. We’ve been making this recipe for years and love topping it with all sorts of fresh fruits.

Chia pudding—which is where chia seeds are soaked in a liquid and they turn into a sort of a thick, gel (which I realize sounds weird, but is what happens!)—is packed with healthy fats, fiber, and some protein. It has a pleasant thick texture that’s similar to the consistency of pudding. And it’s a yummy way to offer up calcium to kids.

Description

I like to use canned full-fat coconut milk for the best flavor and creamy texture, though you can use “light” coconut milk if that’s what you can find at your store.



Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a medium bowl except the toppers. Stir together to make a smooth mixture.
  2. Add to airtight containers (I like to do small snack-size ones but you can do one larger container too) and store in the fridge for at least 2 hours and up to 3-5 days.
  3. Serve cold topped with desired toppings.

Notes

Store in the fridge in airtight containers for up to 3-5 days.

Dairy-free: Use nondairy Greek-style yogurt.

Use canned coconut milk for the best coconut flavor.

Use regular milk if you’re not into coconut.

If your yogurt is lumpy and not stirring up well, use a whisk to make a smooth mixture.

Top with fresh fruit, granola, or other desired toppers.
