This is a short and sweet post today, as I have been spending quite a lot of time on my upcoming book 'BecomingSweet'.
As you may or may not be aware, I am a bit of a fan of chia puddings, see HERE, HERE and HERE. They take less than 5 minutes to prepare and then you leave them in the refrigerator overnight to gel. So simple hey! They are the perfect breakfast if you are short on time in the mornings. They are also packed full of nutrients, which I have discussed in more detail in some of my previous chia pudding recipes. I only found out recently that my children are a fan of them too. So they are a winner for everyone in my household. That does not happen too often.
So for my latest chia pudding recipe, I bring you my Tropical Chia Pudding. This is a great flavour combination for the current climate here in Nelson Bay (and in many other parts of Australia), as it has been quite muggy here lately. I have included the mango as optional, as the pineapple and passion fruit work really well on their own, however they also work well with the mango.
I hope you enjoy my latest breakfast creation.
Tropical Chia Pudding
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
- 1/4 fresh pineapple, chopped
- Pulp from 1/2 passionfruit
- Optional - 1/4 mango, sliced
Place the chia seeds in a small bowl or glass. Add the coconut milk and maple syrup and mix well. Cover and place in the refrigerator to set overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator, check that the chia seeds have gelled and add the fruit.
Serve and enjoy.
