Benefits of coconut chia pudding
Chia seed pudding is super good for your health- namely, your gut health! Chia seeds have:
- Fiber (both soluble and insoluble!!)
Is chia pudding good for weight loss?
Yes! Chis seeds are high in fiber and quality protein- both of which are super important for weight loss. Fiber and protein can help to reduce your appetite and keep you full longer.
How to make Pink Pitaya Chia Pudding
Pink dragon fruit chia pudding is an easy make ahead recipe! You can eat chia pudding for a snack, or a super healthy breakfast!
1.To make pink chia pudding, grab a medium sized bowl and add: 6 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 cup coconut milk (or your favorite), 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon pink pitaya powder.
2. Whisk with a fork to combine.
3. Let your bowl sit for about 5 minutes to let the chia seeds start to gel (soak up the milk).
4. Whisk again with your fork. Make sure to break up any chunks of chia that have formed so you have a uniform chia seed pudding texture.
5. Let your bowl sit for another 5 minutes.
6. Whisk again.
You will notice that your pudding has become much thicker as the chia seeds have soaked up a lot of the liquid.
At this point, you can eat your chia pudding, or (my favorite way), divide it between 2 containers and add ½ cup pink pitaya chunks to each container.
I like to let my chia seed pudding sit in the fridge overnight. Allowing chia seed pudding to soak overnight really helps to make a delicious and creamy texture!
How to store chia seed pudding
Chia seeds can be stored for quite awhile when they are dry. But once you have introduced liquid to them, their shelf life quickly declines.
Store your chia seed pudding in an airtight container in the fridge for only up to 3 days!
Do chia seeds come from dragon fruit?
Although those tiny seeds in dragon fruit might look a lot like chia seeds, they are just dragon fruit seeds. Chia seeds actually come from a different plant called Salvia hispanica. Salvia hispanica is a member of the mint family!
