Breakfast: Coconut & Vanilla Chia Pudding
Coconut & Vanilla two of my favourite things on this earth! And oh, these flavours combined in this pudding is magic and full of fiber!
Creamy, thick chia pudding that’s easy to make, nutritious, and so delicious! Just a few ingredients required for this tasty breakfast, snack, or dessert!
Health Benefits of chia seeds
Rich in fiber, antioxidants, calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium
Excellent source of essential fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid which is an important anti-inflammatory fat known as “the plant omega-3”
May provide therapeutic benefit for certain cardiovascular, immune, and digestive conditions
Ingredients for this yummy dessert for breakfast:
*1 and 1/2 cups of plain yogurt
*1 tsp vanilla essence
*1 tbsp chia seeds
*2 tsp smooth cottage cheese
*vanilla protein whey ( I used vanilla & coconut protein whey)
*Dash of almond milk
*1 tsp dessicated coconut
1. To a mixing bowl add dairy free milk, chia seeds, vanilla protein powder, cottage cheese, dessicated coconut and vanilla essence. Whisk to combine.
2. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 6 hours). The chia pudding should be thick and creamy. If not, add more chia seeds, stir, and refrigerate for another hour or so.
3. Layer with fresh coconut chunks and dessicated coconut! Will keep covered in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
