My mom was visiting from Israel just before the New Year and on one of our lunch outings in Los Angeles we stumbled across a delectable and simple coconut milk chia pudding.
Ever since that day I have been experimenting with variations on this creamy tasty delight.
The best thing is how simple it is to make:
- 1 can of unsweetened light coconut milk
- 5 tbsp of chia seeds
- 3 tbsp of maple syrup
- Mix and let sit overnight, covered, in the fridge
- Serve with cut up berries, figs, mangos, chocolate, toasted coconut, and/or dates
Best of all is that coconut milk is dairy-free, contains high quality fat, and chia seeds are full of fiber, vegetarian omega 3's, and help stabilize blood sugar.
With many flavor variations on this base template, chia seed pudding might just become one of your best friends in 2015.
