Pineapple Coconut Chia Pudding

Refreshing and very nutritious, rich in tropical flavors, pineapple coconut chia pudding is an ultimate healthy meal. Packed with high-quality proteins, fibers, healthy omega-3 acids, and vitamins, you can serve this chia pudding as healthy breakfast or refreshing summer dessert.

Well HELLO SUMMER! πŸ˜€ I don’t know about you, but although it’s only a first day of summer, I already turned my vacation mode on. I started to look for my new swimming suit on the web. I even bought some beach sandals, and I’m thinking of buying that gorgeous beach dress I saw last week in H&M store. Yes, in my mind, I’m there baby. On the beach, lying on the hot sand with a tropical smoothie in my hands. BUT until that beautiful moment me going on vacation comes, I can enjoy in tropical flavors at my home. And hey… why wouldn’t you enjoy with me, right? πŸ˜‰ So today, on the first day of summer, I share with you this recipe for a refreshing, rich in flavor, coconut chia pudding made with super healthy chia seeds and tropical fruit – pineapple.

For making this chia pudding I used homemade coconut milk in which I added some honey and vanilla. Of course, you can use store-bought coconut milk for this recipe. The difference between store-bought and homemade coconut milk is in the fullness of coconut flavor. Also, when you make coconut milk at home, it has no added sugar in it. I already wrote in my previous blog post about how you can make coconut milk at home. You can find instructions on this link. To make chia pudding, just soak chia seeds in coconut milk for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until you get nice gelatine mass. I served chia pudding with fruit puree made of frozen pineapple. Frozen pineapple puree gave the pudding really refreshing taste. That’s why this dish is perfect for summer.

  1. Natalie, I am right there with you with vacation mode on. Can that mode be in full-throttle? Or does that defeat the purpose? Lol. Meanwhile, this delicious tropical pudding is just perfect for vacay mode. Pineapple and coconut are such a yummy combo! Love that it’s so easy to make and full of the good stuff! Pinning!

  2. Love chia pudding and can’t wait to try this one! Looks amazing!

    is this coconut milk from a can or the carton etc stuff ?

    • I usually make my own coconut milk but if I use storebought, than I buy the one in carton box. Coconut milk in can is a full fat while in carton box is plain and more for drinking and everyday cooking.

    Carton coconut milk doesn’t taste very ‘coconutty’ to me. May canned be used? I usually buy the organic, no BPA brand, full fat, to use in my coffee, since dairy & I don’t get along.

    • I agree with you. Carton coconut milk is not quite like coconut sometimes πŸ˜€ BUT there are many brands, and some of them are ok. I use Alpro… dunno if you have that brand in the US. The BEST option is to make homemade coconut milk. I make my own whenever I have time. It has the BEST taste, AND it’s quite cheap comparing to store coconut milk.

      You can use canned coconut milk here in this recipe. But it’s full fat which means a lot of unnecessary fats so if you’re watching your weight it may be a tiny problem πŸ˜‰ PS I feel you… I know ALL about dairy problems.

  5. can homemade cocomilk be preprared ahead of time? is it ok to consume it two days after? how to store cocomilk?

    • Hi Dianne! Yes, you can prepare homemade coconut milk ahead and store it in refrigerator up to 3-4 days. When making coconut milk just use boiled water and make sure you store freshly made coconut milk in thoroughly cleaned glass bottle with good lid.
