Chia Pudding with Coconut Milk and Berries

– 1/4 cup chia seed – 1 cup coconut milk (canned or homemade) – 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup or sweetener of choice – 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Gather Ingredients: 

In a bowl, combine chia seeds and coconut milk. Stir well to avoid clumps.   

Mix Chia Seeds and Coconut Milk: 

Enhance the flavor by adding vanilla extract if desired. Mix well to evenly distribute the flavors.   

Add Vanilla Extract (Optional): 

Allow the mixture to rest for a few minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent chia seeds from settling at the bottom.   

Let it Sit: 

After the initial rest, give the mixture another good stir to ensure an even distribution of chia seeds.   

Revisit and Stir: 

Taste the mixture and add more sweetener if necessary. Keep in mind that the sweetness may intensify as the pudding sets.   

Sweeten Again if Needed: 

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the mixture to an airtight container. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably, overnight.   

Cover and Refrigerate: 

Once chilled, check the consistency of the pudding. It should be thick and have a pudding-like texture.   

Check Consistency: 

Spoon the coconut chia pudding into serving dishes. Top it with your favorite fruits, nuts, or shredded coconut. Serve chilled and savor the delightful coconut flavor!   

Serve and Enjoy:
