Coconut-Chia Pudding with Fresh Berries

Posted on | June 27, 2012 | 10 Comments

Chia seeds are something I only recently discovered. They are quite the healthy addition to anyone’s diet. These seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and protein. They are also a great source of calcium, magnesium, fiber, iron, zinc etc.

This recipe is really easy to make. The coconut milk adds a very nice touch to this recipe. Enjoy this pudding as a breakfast treat, snack, or dessert.  

Here are two other recipes with Chia seeds: Blueberry Overnight Oatmeal and Strawberry Overnight Oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tsp agave syrup
  • fresh berries

Directions

In a bowl, mix the coconut milk, chia seeds, and the agave syrup. Pour the mixture into four small bowls or glasses.

Place the pudding in the the refrigerator for 30 minutes or overnight.

Before serving, fill the bowls or cups with fresh berries.

Guten Appetit!!!

    I’ve only tried chia in lemon water but never as a pudding, it looks almost like rice pudding, I will try it

    @ beti: Do you call it Chia Fresca? I have heard about lemon water and chia seeds but I have never tried it… Thanks for the inspiration.

    The chia seeds remind me of tapioca pudding, too. This looks so delicious and filling.

    Hey! Sorry if this is a dumb question, but do you use the coconut milk in a can (the thicker stuff) or the one in the carton, in the refrigerated section?

    Thanks!

    @ Heather: That’s definitely not a dumb question. I used canned coconut milk for this recipe. Thanks for asking.

    Can I use refrigerated vanilla coconut milk?

    @ Lynda: I used canned coconut milk and I haven’t tried it with the refrigerated coconut milk yet. The canned milk is thicker and so I am not sure about the outcome if the thinner refrigerated milk was to be used. On the other hand, the chia seeds when soaked become gel-like so it might work with the refrigerated milk. I hope this helps a little.
