Chia Pudding

Well.

It has been a hot minute since I've been here to write! 

Why?

I.
got.
MARRIED!

Wooo!

I'm officially off the market & I married that James fella.


Everything was great. Beautiful. Perfect. 

Eeeek!

Okay, enough about all that mushy love junk. 

I think I can redeem my absence with this recipe. It has become my new favorite breakfast & it's just one of those recipes that you just know will be with you the rest of your life. Not kidding, it's that: 1. easy 2. tasty 3. diverse. 4. cheap 5. healthy. I mean... this is, legit, one of the best, if not thee best, recipe I've come across. 

3 ingredients. THREE. It just blows my mind. 

I had a really tough time finding a yogurt that had wholesome ingredients, was affordable, tasted good, & had low sugar. Coconut milk has 1 gram of sugar in it. 1 gram! I no longer need yogurt. This stuff replaces yogurt in my life. 






Chia Pudding
Coconut Milk (canned)
Frozen Fruit (I love strawberries best)
Chia Seeds
Vanilla (optional)
Toppings (optional)

Now, for this recipe, I had a video I was going off of, but I mostly just wung (winged?) it. Into a blender, I put about 2 cups frozen fruit and half a can of coconut milk. This will make about 2-3 small dishes of this stuff. I also add in a dash of vanilla. Blend this until mixed well. Pour the mix into dishes. Take a few teaspoons of chia seeds and mix it in each dish. Put a lid on each dish and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, top with fruit, coconut, granola, etc. 

Here is the video I learned this from:



TRY THIS. 

It could just replace yogurt in your diet, too! 

Note: I did try this with coconut milk from a carton, and it was very liquidy the next day.

You can find canned coconut milk in the baking aisle or the Asian food aisle. I have found it in Wal-Mart & in local grocery stores. The frozen fruit & chia seeds I got at Aldi. 

Do yourself a solid and make this stuff. Just try it once & amuse me. But comment below to let me know how it went! 

Marital Bliss & Coconut Love,
