Coconut Chia Pudding
To tell you the truth, I wasn't into chia pudding for a long time. I wanted to be- everyone else was excited about it- but I couldn't get over the tapioca-like texture. This changed once I made it with the real coconut milk- it became way thicker, and is naturally sweet. Now I crave it all the time, as breakfast, a snack or even as dessert. Use whichever fruit you like- my favorite is apples.
Chia is a fantastic source of fibre, and has some protein as well. Coconut milk is a source of healthy fats as well as a some protein. There's also no sugars added, meaning it's filling, delicious and satisfying, but also full of nutrition.
