Coconut and Chia Breakfast Puddings


Breakfast is a tough one in our house. My Ben just doesn't feel like eating when he gets up. Gone are the pre-school days when he could nibble for a couple of hours until his gut was ready to accept a meal. Now that he's at school it's my every-morning battle to get a decent breakfast into him. I needed something easy to eat, not too strong in flavour and really filling in small quantities. These Breakfast Puddings were a hit. They're fantastic to eat when you're in a rush or for soothing sensitive tummys.

These Coconut Chia Breakfast Puddings have the consistency of a rice pudding. They're sweet but not too sweet, and the chia seeds make them really filling. Here's how I make them:

400ml Coconut milk or other dairy free milk
1/2 C Chia seeds (white)
1/2 C Frozen berries
1 tsp Good quality vanilla extract
1 tsp agave or maple syrup (optional)

Mix all ingredients together and pour into glasses. Place in the fridge for at least 30 mins or overnight to set.
