Blueberry Pecan Chia Seed Pudding


We all know how much I love my juicer, and I usually drink a juice of some size shape or form for breakfast every morning. My favorites include my Skinny Jeans juice and this Mango Carrot juice. But sometimes I need a little more sustenance to make it until noon without a morning snack at the office. This right here is the answer to all of my breakfast prayers. The coconut milk has a mildly sweet taste, combined with some fresh fruit, and the crunch form the pecans, this is a win/win for me. I stay full and my sweet/salty tooth is satisfied through out the morning. Plus, this is so easy to throw together. Just whisk together and set in the fridge overnight. When you wake up, wa-la! Breakfast is served!


Blueberry Pecan Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients:
  • 1 15-oz. can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • handful of chopped pecans
  • shredded or flaked coconut for garnish
In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, chia seeds, vanilla, and coconut sugar. Cover tightly and let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours, but I find it best when you let it sit overnight.

When ready to serve, place 2 spoonfuls int he bottom of a jar. Sprinkle a small handful of blueberries, then top with another 2 spoonfuls of chia seed pudding. Top with more blueberries, some chopped pecans, and sprinkle with some shredded or flaked coconut. Serve cold.

  2. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
