CHIA COCONUT PUDDING WITH TROPICAL FRUIT (AKA I am in love!)

Breakfast (or brunch) is my favourite meal of the day, so I am always inspired by the amazing breakfast alternatives I come across online. I found this lovely post on Mama Papa Bubba and numerous delicious looking chia pudding thumbnail images on Pinterest and I just had to make some as part of Project Pinterest, week 5! Oh. My. Gosh. This is one of the best breakfasts I have ever eaten- I kid you not! I might be living in Scandinavia during arguably the most “depressing” time of the year, however one spoonful of this amazing pudding and I was transported back to Australia… in glorious summertime. Please do try this! I am amazed that something so healthy and so nutritious can also taste so divine.

Chia Coconut Pudding- a perfect breakfast, snack or dessert!

    • Thank you 🙂 They really do seem to be amazing, huh? I think I’ll do a bit of research on good ol’ google about their health-giving properties too, as I really don’t know so much about them.

    • Hmm, I am really no expert, but my dad tried some of this today (and loved it!) and said it reminded him of sago. Do you know what that is? Perhaps that’s easier to come by? I am really not sure though… If I find out I’ll let you know! 🙂

      • yes! tapioca balls ^^thank you.. as much as i’d love to try many of the healthy recipes i see here @ wordpress, im kinda limited by the ingredients that are only available here ^^ thanks though

  1. I did just make chia pudding for my breakfast, like yesterday! With vanilla almond milk. What a coincidence to see your post 🙂 But I can’t wait to try it with coconut milk soon.

  2. MM, I love breakfast too! I have my favourite breakfast recipe which varies depending on what kind of additions I have 😉
    anyway, yours sounds very exotic for me but tasty 🙂

    • Yes, this breakfast is a kind of exotic for me too (definitely not what I grew up eating for breakfast). I have always been a more traditional cereals for breakfast gal. And when I travel I LOVE hotel breakfasts… you know, the kind with enough calories to last you the rest of the day 😉 But this pudding is a really nice change… and I love the addition of fruit and nuts 🙂
