Spiced Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

As you can see, I’m still playing with chia seeds.  I’ve been trying them out in just about everything….some things are better without them.  But this pudding is not one of those things.

I was cleaning out the refrigerator the other day, a chore I despise, and found some leftover coconut milk.  It didn’t take me long to decide I was going to make a pudding.  A healthy pudding, something to take the edge off when I’m craving something sweet.  I wanted it to be creamy and cinnamony….like a comforting rice pudding but without all the carbs…and the sugar crash.

I achieved my goal.  This pudding tastes very similar to the rice pudding my grandfather used to make….but again, without the carbs and refined sugar.

Chia seeds are an amazing super food (seed?) and are the “new”, of the moment ingredient that a lot of people are experimenting with.  They don’t have much flavor but they do act as a thickener in puddings and dressings.   Some claim they are a great appetite suppressant for that reason, they plump up after you eat them making you feel fuller longer.

I don’t know if that’s true, I’m hungry all the time no matter what I eat.  But I’ll be sure to keep this pudding on hand for my weak moments, it really does do the trick.

  1. Looks good – would love to try it! Can you find the chia seeds in the supermarket?

  2. Yum, this sounds great! I love coconut anything and I have chia seeds, so this is a keeper!

  3. Coconut milk, not the stuff in the can – right? Is it packaged like almond milk?

  4. This looks AMAZING. I recently made a chia seed pudding with raw cacao for a chocolate pudding, but this sounds even better. Raw cacao is really an overpowering flavor.
