This Honey Coconut Chia Pudding is a truly cupful of sunshine! Perfect as quick and nutritious breakfast, afternoon snack, or healthy dessert.
I know that there are thousands of Chia pudding recipes out there. And although, the chia seed has been all the rage in the health world for a while, I found out, during my media tour with the National Honey Board, that there are many people that still doesn’t know about the delicious and easy to make Chia pudding. Yes…really!! So I thought I needed to share my favorite way to eat chia seed.
Drum rolls please…meet my Honey Coconut Chia Pudding!!
As always, my favorite thing about this recipe is that it can be completely made the night before.
You can whip up all sorts of fruity variations for chia seed pudding, and also use your favorite milk. I love using coconut milk, since it gives it an extra layer of flavor, that combined with the honey takes this divine pudding to other level.
Don’t be fooled by their size! These tiny seeds are full of goodness, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. And, unlike flax seeds, they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body, so it’s so easy to incorporate into the kitchen. Try adding them to your oatmeal or smoothies to amp up the health factor!
This Honey Coconut Chia Pudding will satisfy your sweet tooth without sacrificing the waist line.
Happy pudding making!
