Some days you just want a dessert you can make in under 4 minutes. Where you don’t have to turn on the oven, don’t have to worry about anything other than a can opener, scooping, stirring, and tasting. That’s what this Coconut Chia Seed Pudding is about. I got this idea from my friend Mary who brought this to a party with fruit and granola for a vegan parfait!
- Change around the flavors if you want, add some almond extract, vanilla bean seeds, vanilla extract, maraschino cherry juice, etc.
- Make this part of your parfait: just add fruit + granola!
- Add a touch of salt to contrast the maple syrup sweetness.
- The more chia seeds you add, the thicker the pudding will be. Chia seeds take a little while to plump up to their full volume, so just remember that you can always add more, but you can’t take out. Though if you do over do it on the chia seeds, then just add more coconut milk!
