Chia Seed Pudding

One thing about fresh coconut milk:  It only lasts about 4-5 days in the refrigerator.  So once you make it , you will want to get the most out of your fresh batch before you have to freeze what’s left.  Since I already have the chia seeds out when I’m making Matt’s oatmeal,  I always make some chia seed pudding. This is one of my favorite snacks and it’s easy to make.

  • 2 Tablespoons of Chia seeds
  • 1/2-2/3 cup of fresh coconut milk

Directions:

Put the Chia seeds in a small mason jar.  Add the coconut milk and stir until they begin to absorb enough of the milk to be suspended.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.  The Chia seed pudding is good for about 4 days but, I guarantee that it won’t last that long.  Enjoy! Makes 2 servings.

Food Tip:  This snack is high in protein but also high in fat.  Eat it sparingly especially if you are making your own coconut milk.

Time Tip:  Freeze the coconut meat in 6oz portions.  When it’s time to make your milk just defrost and blend.

Money Tip:  Coconuts are not that expensive.  They tend to run about $2 but the price drops around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
