Chia seeds are like the jelly (or jello as American call it) or the health enthusiastic world. A revolution has unfolded where this like Peruvian protein enriched seeds are causing a frenzy. You can add them to your smoothie, make egg replacement or even make a chocolate chia pudding recipe.
This pudding is very simple to make and incredibly tasty. I would highly recommend showing this recipe or my mango chia seed pudding to some open minded friends because chia seeds aren’t to everyone’s liking, which is perfectly okay as cannot please everyone.
Now onto the fun part…….drum roll…….the TOPPING. I nailed it, I really did. The topping is quite interesting, here we have so whipped coconut milk. YES!! A can of full fat coconut milk, chilled (or partially frozen). What you are required to do is to scoop out the coconut soilds from the top half of the can and whip them with an electric whisk. When scooping out the solids, you will notice some liquid towards the bottom of the can, you won’t need that so discard it.
- For the pudding
- For the topping
In a small bowl pour in the vanilla, chia seeds and coconut milk.
Briskly whisk the mixture in the bowl, after a few minutes you will notice the chia seeds begin to swell in size/volume. Continue to whisk for a total of 5 minutes before leaving to rest and expand to its full capacity over a course of 30 minutes.
After the given time transfer the pudding into wine glasses, ready for the topping.
To make the topping open a can of coconut milk and proceed to insert a spoon by ⅓ of the can. Carefully scoop of the coconut solids into a bowl, being careful not to lower the spoon into the liquid underneath.
Discard or save the liquid to add to a smoothie.
Add the coconut sugar to the solids and whisk until smooth and fluffy with an electric whisk.
Scoop the whipped cream onto the chocolate chia seed pudding, ready to serve
