I must say I was hesitant to try making a chia seed pudding. With the coconut it makes it a little unappetizing looking -- somewhere between vomit and bird poop. However, I find this dish refreshing and the perfect pick me up when I need the energy, or as a great breakfast to start my day.
1 C. coconut milk
1/4 C. chia seeds 2 dates, chopped (or dried fruit of your choice)
1/4 C (scant) assorted seeds and nuts, chopped
healthy pinch unsweetened coconut flakes
Mix everything together reserving a few chopped seeds and nuts for garnish. Refrigerate a couple hours before serving. Note: You don't have to add the dried fruit.
Note: I would also like to try this adding cocoa powder into the mixture.
