Coconut Almond Chia Pudding

When it comes to healthy treats, I love making chia pudding. Last year around this same time is when I first discovered the wonder that is chia seeds. Quickly Triple Berry Chia Pudding became my new favorite sweet snack, dessert and even breakfast. These little super seeds are a nutrition powerhouse! High in fiber, protein, Omega-3′s not to mention Magnesium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Zinc, Potassium and Vitamins B1, B2 and B3. Chia seeds are just crazy healthy. You can add them to many different things making it easy to enjoy them.

Add a scoop into your morning smoothie, sprinkle into your yogurt or on top of cereal or soak them in any liquid to turn them into a pudding-like consistency. This coconut almond chia pudding is definitely my favorite afternoon snack or evening dessert whenever my sweet tooth strikes lately. Think about an Almond Joy. Sweet coconut, dark chocolate and almonds. It’s a heavenly bite.

This coconut almond chia pudding is just like that Almond Joy bar with none of the guilt. Chia seeds mixed with coconut almond milk giving this chia pudding a ton of flavor alone but then sprinkle on some roasted almonds, toasted coconut and for a bit of a guilty pleasure, just a touch of heart-healthy chopped dark chocolate.  This chia pudding is quick to put together and will quickly become a favorite of yours also.

Enjoy!

Summertime at our house means that our grill is in constant use. I love grilling! When you don’t have central air and your window units just don’t cut it, being able to cook outside and not turn on the oven is a true blessing. I even like to grill dessert! Grilled dessert pizza anyone? But […]

Even eating is a balancing act. I’m always striving to strike a healthy balance between eating a well rounded, nutritious diet with the occasional indulgence, […]

I love having a side of tomato feta quinoa with grilled chicken especially in the summer. Or how about the sweet side of quinoa? My love affair with […]

Sometimes life throws you a curveball. A big, wet computer drenching curveball! It’s been 2 weeks and I’m computer-less. In case you were wondering, laptops don’t do well when sprayed with a hose accidentally. This will be short and sweet as I attempt to type this FROM MY PHONE! Yes, my phone. Mobile is not […]

Here in New Jersey we get a bad rap as being stinky, congested, crowded and having a bad attitude. When the cast of Jersey Shore descended upon us, I don’t think that helped our reputation at all either. Sure, we’re highly populated and we do have several areas of our state that are areas of industry […]
