A piña colada take on a chai seed pudding? Heck, yes!
This may actually end up being the easiest meal you will ever make. To sum it up, you flavor your coconut milk and add it to the chia seeds and let them hydrate. The chia seeds morph into a texture similar to miniature tapioca pearls with a “custard-like” binding.
The final result is a delicate “coconut pudding” with little bursts of texture in the form of the rehydrated chia seeds. Garnish with diced pineapple and fresh mint for a creative take on a piña colada cocktail by the beach.
Besides being very easy to prepare and the fact that this dish tastes delicious, there is also another aspect of this dish that might even be its best quality.
Chia seeds, which are the seeds from the plant Saliva Hispanica, a plant in the same family as mint and basil, are full of nutritional value! In a 28 gram/1 ounce serving of chia seeds, you can find 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein and many different vitamins and minerals. That is a lot of nutrition for just under 2 tablespoons of seeds. I suppose that is the reason the Aztecs and Mayans named the seeds “chia” or “strength”, which is the translation for chia.
Not only do we love chia seed pudding because it makes for a tasty and healthy breakfast but it's so easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. Here's your grocery list:
