CHIA PUDDING W. COCONUT
Last week I posted MY BEST CHIA PUDDING that I made for breakfast. I needed to change it up a little and would give chia pudding another go even though I previously haven’t had much luck. That night we’re having guests over and I was “in charge” of making dessert so hubby suggested that I made a dessert version of the chia pudding, which I did.
As I mentioned in my post about my breakfast chia pudding, I don’t like my breakfast sweet so to make the dessert version of my chia pudding I added a little natural sweetener but that’s optional. Besides adding a little natural sweetener, I made coconut pudding for the top layer.
Chia pudding dessert topped with coconut pudding for around 8 people
INGREDIENTS (Chia pudding)
Coconut milk options: Instead of 2 cups of coconut milk, you can use one 400ml can of coconut milk + 100ml water OR you can use 1 cup of coconut milk powder dissolved in 1 1/2 cup of water. I use the powder option.
Mix all ingredients except chia seeds in a blender, food processor or Thermomix until smooth. It shouldn’t be too runny.
Pour and scrape out the mix into a bowl and mix in the chia seeds and leave to stand for 10 minutes or longer so the chia seeds can absorb the liquid.
Pour the chia pudding into small dessert glasses or bowls and add a layer of fresh or frozen berries and/or chopped nuts on top of the chia pudding.
Leave space for the coconut pudding layer on top.

Now on to the coconut pudding
INGREDIENTS (coconut pudding)
Add the gelatine powder in to a cup or small bowl before slowly pouring the boiling water while stirring until dissolved. Put aside shortly while preparing the rest.
Mix coconut milk, vanilla powder and banana in a blender, food processor or Thermomix until smooth.
Now add the gelatine mix into your blender, food processor or Thermomix and spin until mixed well.
Pour on top of the chia pudding with berries and/or chopped nuts and put into the fridge to set for a couple of hours.
