Coconut Chia Pudding

I have been looking for ways to add bits of coconut to my food.  I am convinced that coconut has lots of health benefits… I have read so much about it over the past couple of years, and now find, with one of my own health issues, that the type of fat in coconut is very beneficial to my body.

I shall spare you the details!

I already use coconut oil exclusively for cooking, and I have also been brushing my teeth with a mixture of coconut oil and baking soda occasionally… but now I am eating more coconut meat.  And I have been adding shreds to lots of my Breakfast Bowls and mixing it in to my snacks, too.

This Coconut Chia Pudding is something I started experimenting with a while back, and I have finally tweaked it to my own satisfaction so it is ready to share.  The use of the microwave oven warms the almond milk and helps it to set up the chia seeds faster… but you can leave this step out if you like… just be prepared to leave the pudding in the fridge for several hours or even overnight to set up and thicken your pudding.

Chia Pudding

I do like to have a banana with mine occasionally.  I think that it would be nice made with coconut milk, too, but I haven’t tried it yet.
