Coconut Chocolate Chia Pudding

Posted on

Coconut Chocolate Chia Pudding sounds like a mouthful, wow! There are a lot of C’s in that title. Are you an eater of chia seeds? Do you think of the “ch-ch-ch chia” song when you see chia seeds? For some reason, I do! I wasn’t going to fall for the craze of eating chia seeds because I don’t know if I really believe all their healthy hype. Anyone have any ideas on chia seeds they want to share with me? I did see them at a stand when going to the Farmer’s Market and I gave in, purhcasing a small bag of them. I have used them on my oatmeal and mixed them in with smoothies. So far, so good. As we were going to Colorado this past weekend, I was reading Women’s Running Magazine and I spotted this chia seed recipe. I put chia seeds to the test last night…

  1. I have never tried chia seeds but I know where to buy them here in HK. Does it give it an interesting texture?

    • The texture is smooth from the coconut milk leaving a small feeling of the chia seeds. It’s definitely much different than I expected! Give it a try.
