Without a doubt, I just love me some pudding!

For example, I usually like to make Pistachio Jello Instant Pudding & Pie Filling and add whipped cream on top.

It’s such a nice treat at the end of the day, but probably not the most healthy or filling.

Clearly, I need a pudding that has more mmmph to it health-wise and filling-wise.

Interestingly, in a recent issue of one of the magazines I was flipping through, I found a page of ‘Power Breakfasts’ that include:

Because of the fact that I’ve tried most of the items in the above list, I decided to try out Chia Pudding with coconut milk.

Chia Pudding Looks Like Tapioca

Needless to say, since I had never eaten chia pudding before, I was a little bit apprehensive when I saw the picture and the recipe.

However, I was also enthralled because I’ve have seen the buzz about chia seeds and chia pudding a lot lately.

Particularly, it resembles tapioca or rice pudding, which I really like, so I knew I’d like this recipe!

Chia Pudding Has Way More Protein

The great advantage of chia seeds over tapioca and rice puddings (both starches) is that chia seeds offer a powerful punch of:

  • Protein (about 5 grams per serving)
  • Fiber (10 grams per serving)
  • Calcium (17% RDA)
  • Omega-3s
  • Antioxidants

In addition, antioxidants from chia seeds are higher than any other whole food, even blueberries.

Now, that’s impressive!

Here’s a great book on Chia with information on why it’s such a great super food, along with recipes.

Chia pudding with coconut milk Is Easy To Make

Undoubtedly, this WW friendly recipe is ridiculously easy to make.

It should be noted, I did have to add more chia seeds to thicken up the pudding though.

Chia seeds absorb 10 times their weight in liquid and convert it into a pudding type consistency.

Unquestionably, this is why it’s so very popular these days!

This nice little 4 piece set of serving bowls (Amazon) is perfect for serving your chia pudding.

Not only can you eat your chia pudding for breakfast, but also, you can eat it in the evening as an after-dinner treat.

After my pudding was at the desired thickness, I added some sliced bananas on top and tried it out.

Why I Love chia pudding with coconut milk

Obviously, I loved it!

Indeed, it is SO refreshing to know that I can indulge in something really healthy for me.

As well as that, I really enjoy the little crunch from the seeds as well as the taste of the coconut milk, vanilla, and honey.

Moreover, there are so many topping possibilities for chia pudding:

  • Coconut & Pineapple
  • Apples & Nuts
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas

I’ve even seen chocolate chia pudding on Pinterest.  Gotta try that!

I’m SO excited about my new chia seed discovery that I’m looking for other ways to eat it.

For instance, this morning I topped my yogurt with chia seeds.

Chia Pudding Is High In Fiber

Keep in mind, each serving has 10 grams of fiber.

It WILL make you regular, which is a good thing. Just be prepared for it. Wait for it……

A high in fiber, healthy treat

Chia Pudding with Coconut Milk - 3 WW SmartPoints

I purchased my white chia seeds from Wegmans.

Surprisingly white chia seeds can be hard to find.

On the other hand, dark chia seeds are much easier to find.

Therefore, if you can’t find white chia seeds in your local supermarket, you can buy whole white chia seeds from Amazon.

Finally, have YOU ever had chia seeds before?

And I don’t mean the old way of using them by spreading them onto a clay pot to make a chia pet!

Yes, they’re the same chia seeds.

Let us know in the comments how you prefer to eat them.

    • Hi Debra,

      I don’t know how to calculate Smart Points. I’m from the Points Plus Value days.

      Sorry I can’t help you!

    • Hi, I think (with Smart Points) chia seeds are 2 smart points for each tablespoon (so 1/4 cup would be 8 smart points), the honey is 4 smart points per tablespoon and the unsweetened almond/coconut milk is 1 smart point per cup. So, this recipe would be 13 smart points total. I find this pudding to be too much for me to eat at one sitting, so I split it up into 2 portions (mixing it up in a measuring cup and then pouring half into two mason jars and cover overnight in the fridge). If you did it this way, you’d have only around 6/7 smart points per serving and two days worth of breakfast. Very yummy with a small banana one day and a 1/2 cup of blueberries the next day ๐Ÿ˜€
