Coconut Chia Pudding


Use chia seeds to make an easy and healthy form of pudding, all in which tastes delicious and requires no cooking. Similar to that of  tapioca texture, but doesn't really have a taste and therefore is perfect to combine with any desired flavors or add them in baked goods, on top of salads, in smoothies or cereals... really the possibilities are endless, I love chia seeds-- an excellent source of omega fatty acids and full of minerals, vitamins, fiber and protein. And when this little seed is soaked in liquid, it expands up to 12 times its own weight, being sure to keep you full. You could easily adjust this to your preferences using whichever fruits of milk of your choice, bon apetit!

Coconut Chia Pudding: (serves 2)
Ingredients: 
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tbs unsweetened coconut
1 cup coconut milk
1 water (or more milk)
1tbps sweetener*
toasted coconut flakes

Directions: 
Place all the ingredients together in a tupper ware or bowl, mix, and cover overnight or at least a couple hours in the fridge. Toast some coconut if desired and sprinkle on top.

*I actually didn't use any sweetener, but most people would probably suggest it, so try it before you add any sugars just in case ;)
