Before talking about this recipe I NEED to tell you a little story (not too long and not too much rambling, I promise).
The day before making these lovely piña colada chia pudding I was experimenting with the coconut milk and the chia seed.
So my guinea pig (AKA the boyfriend) had to taste every combination of sea pudding to determine which one had better consistency. The point is that I was serving him spoon after spoon of pudding with the classical premise “don’t ask just chew”. He liked it but when finally asked: “what was that?” I don’t know why I said that it was “spider eggs”.
The result: a boyfriend with nightmares about eating tons of spider eggs as breakfast — BF’s note: I dreamed we were tasting local food in Peru. Don’t ask me why.). His face eating the chia pudding the next morning was a poetry: “I like it but it gives me the creeps”.
Well, the truth is that I love this chia seed pudding more than I could ever expect. It has that tropical flavor, and pineapple plus coconut are one of the best flavor matches. You can’t go wrong with those two!
This chia pudding is so easy and so quick to make that soon it will become the perfect healthy breakfast on the go. You can let the pudding rest overnight, or wait 15 minutes until the chia seeds can absorb enough fluid to get thicker.
The combinations are almost endless. You can find even exotic mixes like this almond milk and fig chia pudding that is just amazing! The limit is your imagination.
The chia pudding is here to stay. In this always-rushing world, where we can’t spend so much time thinking about breakfast, this kind of meals gives us the energy to start any day with the right attitude.
In this particular recipe, you will only need 4 ingredients. Yes, you read it right 1,2,3,4 ingredients! That’s it.
- ½ cup pineapple cut into dices
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 4 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp sweetener Note 1
Mix the coconut milk, the sweetener, and the chia seed. Let it rest overnight.
In a glass, add a base of chia pudding, then some chopped pineapple and repeat the process.
- I highly suggest using any sweetener in liquid forms like Splenda drops or even honey.
