Coconut Chia Pudding

Kanchan KoyaBy Spice Spice Baby  , , , , , , , ,

April 24, 2015

Nutrition
Chia means 'strength' and chia seeds are a superfood for good reason. They are high in calcium - 2 tablespoons contain 180 mg of calcium, the same as 4oz of milk! They also have plant-based omega-3 fats, quality protein, fiber and anti-oxidants. They are a great addition to smoothies, salads, breakfast bars and puddings. Here, they marry beautifully with coconut milk and fiber, protein and calcium-rich rolled oats for a decadent pudding that takes seconds to prepare.

  • Yields: 1-2 toddler servings

Ingredients

1 cup coconut milk

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1/4 cup rolled oats

1 tablespoon honey

Pinch cinnamon, about 1/8 teaspoon

2 cardamom pods smashed

Directions

Mix all ingredients together and give them a good, loving stir. Refrigerate overnight and voila, breakfast is ready. You can stir in fruit of choice (berries or mangoes work nicely here) and add some more coconut milk if your kids like a more liquid pudding. Alternatively, enjoy for a delicious and healthy dessert or snack.
