Superfood chia seeds and creamy coconut milk marry in this vegan and Paleo-friendly coconut chia pudding with caramelized pears.
This wholesome, raw pudding can be served like a traditional panna cotta, creamy and smooth, topped off with some warm, naturally-sweetened coconut-caramelized pears.
This rich pudding is a make-ahead, wholesome treat that will fill you up on fiber, anti-inflammatory omega 3’s, and one that will save you time on busy mornings. It’s guilt-free and packed with goodness, a treat that you can feel good about feeding the kids.
I often make a huge batch of chia pudding at the beginning of the week then add a variety of toppings each day to create an array of mouth-watering variations. My kids love these; Vegan Chocolate Chia Pudding, Strawberry Cheesecake Chia Pudding, and Raspberry Chocolate Chia Pudding Parfait.
The beauty of chia pudding, besides being uber-healthy, is that it only takes minutes to prepare. Soaking the crunchy chia seeds makes them literally transform before your very eyes, as they turn into plump, tapioca-like pearls.
Simply mix the ingredients the night before, pop in the fridge, and rest-assured that you have a healthy, delicious breakfast ready for you and the kids in the morning.
