For years, my typical breakfast was a bowl of cereal with milk. I branched out some when I realized I needed more fruits and vegetables in my diet. Then, a month of dairy-free eating caused me to try something I was sure I wouldn’t like: chia pudding.
Chia pudding is made with coconut milk, and I don’t like coconut.
But I was pleasantly surprised! I did like it! Chia pudding is so good! It’s better than yogurt. (Scroll down for my recipe.)
My favorite breakfast now consists of about half a cup of chia pudding with about two cups of fruit. This morning’s treat features 1/2 cup of kiwi, 1/2 cup of pineapple, and 1 cup of blueberries.
What’s YOUR favorite breakfast?
Add 1/2 cup of chia seeds and 1/4 cup of maple syrup to 14 ounces of coconut milk. Whisk all together and refrigerate for several hours before serving. Add fresh fruit and enjoy!
