Coconut Chia Pudding with Nut and Seeds Mix
Why try chia pudding?
This easy breakfast is also a great anytime snack. While we made this with Freshbox and used coconut milk, it was also delicious with almond milk as well. Cashew milk could work too.
This snack is packed with healthy fats and plenty of heart and gut healthy fiber. That also means that this is very filling and will help you stay fuller, longer. The beauty of these bowls is that the toppings you put on it also add to the nutritional benefits. Add your favorite fruits and topping like nuts and granola. I usually use what is in season which at the time of this recipe was strawberries.
Easy chia pudding prep
The best way to start this recipe is by doing all the prep the night before to let the pudding thicken and you can just dump the toppings on in the morning.
The place I love to find my dry toppings is the bulk section of my market. I love their varieties of granola. The only thing they don’t have usually is sprouted granola in that section so I do buy that in bulk online. That’s also a great place to make a delicious seeds mix!
4 cups coconut milk
1 cup chia seeds
nuts and seeds mix (sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds mixed together)
1 pint of strawberries chopped
Granola of your choice (I like the sprouted granola!)
In a large bowl combine the coconut milk and the chia seeds and stir. Then cover and place in the refrigerator.
Leave overnight in the fridge and let the chia seeds thicken into a pudding. In the morning mix the pudding thoroughly and divide into four or 6 large bowls.
Top the pudding bowls with the seed mix, strawberries, and granola. Add a little more to make it a meal.
This makes a great breakfast, or you can go lighter with the toppings for a lighter snack. Either way, this makes for such a delicious bite throughout the day and can be stored in the fridge for a few days covered. Keep topping separate until ready to eat.
Then enjoy! And let me know, what do you top your chia pudding with?
