Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

I’ve never been a huge yogurt eater, but sometimes I get an unexplainable craving for the creamy substance. Seeing as I’m laying off the dairy these days, when my yogurt craving kicked in, I didn’t know where to turn. Then I remembered chia seeds. I’d been hesitant to buy them considering the cheapest I’d found was a jar for $25 (don’t mind me still getting used to these ridiculous prices) but I got over myself and bought them anyways. These magical little seeds thicken liquids and add a little crunch, which was just what I needed to make some dairy-free creamy goodness. I added some of my strawberry rhubarb compote on top and it made great breakfast and snack. Some of you may even enjoy it as a dessert, but you all know I prefer my dessert in the form of chocolate.

This is seriously easy to make, thus the lack of process photos. Just a bit of coconut milk, chia seeds, vanilla, and shredded coconut. And a bit more patience while it thickens in the refrigerator, just like pudding.

You should probably invest in little spoons while you are at it. They make everything taste better, promise.

  1. $25 on chia seeds! Oh my Caitlin, that is nutso! I wonder if I could mail you some? They just started carrying 5 pound bags at Costco for like $8! I just love chia seed pudding. I’ve been making mine with Almond Milk, but coconut milk is an even better idea! I can’t get enough of coconut lately. I’ve been snacking on toasted coconut flakes like a crazy girl. I bet this is amazing with your rhubarb compote. Yummy! And small spoons do make everything taste better : )
