coconut milk and peach chia pudding

Chia seeds are versatile and fun, since they take on the flavor of what they soak in, kind of like how tofu takes on the flavor of marinades or sauces.

It looks like we are starting to make a chia seed library on our blog! Try our sunflower, date and vanilla chia pudding,  strawberry chia goodness, or our blueberry banana chia smoothie.

But by far, this one takes the cake.

The coconut milk makes this pudding extremely creamy, the sweetness brings it all together, and the seasonal summer peaches cleanses the palate.

Serves 4-6 Prep Time: 3 minutes Total time: 1-2 hours, or overnight.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of light Thai coconut milk
  • ~1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup or 1.5 tbsp of agave
  • 2 peaches, chopped

Directions:

1. Soak: In 2 mason jars, add ~1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1/4 cup of chia seeds and 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Place the lid on and shake. Let sit overnight in your fridge – or let soak for at least 1-2 hours.

2. Prep and enjoy: Before you are ready to eat, rinse and chop up your peaches. Place 1 chopped up peach in each mason jar. Perfect to bring to work for a snack or for a  fast breakfast!

    Simple and delightful recipe, love the idea of topping it with peaches…there is a similar pudding recipe I know which adds rose water and strawberry syrup to regular milk and chia seeds:)
