When I'm craving some sun and I really want to get back to a warm beach in the Caribbean, making something fruity and tropical for breakfast can really boost my mood. This pineapple coconut chia pudding does the trick.
In this tropically flavoured breakfast, you layer coconut milk and vanilla infused chia pudding with a fresh pineapple purée. It's delicious, and refined sugar free.
You may be wondering why my pineapple is pink. I managed to get my hands on a Pink Glow pineapple. These are special, pink pineapples grown in Costa Rica. They are juicier and sweeter than a regular pineapple, and a bit less tart. I really enjoyed this special treat. However, this recipe is delicious whether you use a pink or a yellow pineapple!
Reasons to eat this:
- It is really easy to make.
- It's delicious.
- It's nutritious!
Chia seeds are packed full of antioxidants, protein, fibre, and omega-3 fatty acids. Pineapples are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.
How to make pineapple coconut chia pudding
First, you're going to whisk the coconut milk, chia seeds, agave syrup, and vanilla extract together. Cover and store in the fridge overnight, or for at least a couple of hours.
Layer the chia pudding with the pineapple purée in a small glass, and top with coconut flakes and a small wedge of pineapple. A tropical flower, though not necessary, is a definite bonus.
Time to enjoy your beautiful and nutritious chia pudding.
