Try this Chia Seed Pudding with Coconut Milk for your next Breakfast!
While we were in Florida, there is one restaurant I love going to for breakfast, lunch, and brunch. I was so happy to go to this place two times, one time I ordered the smoked salmon eggs benedict and the other I ordered the chia seed pudding. This chia seed pudding is prepared with coconut milk and served with berry preserves, fresh berries, granola, and coconut flakes. It was so good, and the consistency of the pudding wasn’t slimy like how I have seen others. I knew that when we came back home, I wanted to make this and yeah I nailed it!
I love the creaminess of the coconut milk in this chia seed pudding. There is also a subtle sweetness from the maple syrup and vanilla extract. To top all this off, I use my favorite berry preserves from Bonne Maman (no this isn’t a sponsored post, we just use this brand all the time in our home, and we love it!).
After the chia seeds are soaked in coconut milk overnight unsweetened chilled whipped coconut cream is folded into the pudding elevating the consistency to almost like a mousse.
Chia seeds are soaked overnight in coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. The following morning the pudding is elevated to a mousse and topped with your favorite garnishes.
