Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup chopped kiwi (if using puree then 1.5 cup pureed kiwi)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp silvered almond some more for garnishing

Instructions

Soak chia seed

  • First of all, soak chia seeds in coconut milk overnight or at least 1 hour.
  • Stir in 2-3 times to avoid lumps. Chia seed tends to make lump if undisturbed.
  • Soaked chia seeds form a gel-like consistency. If this is too thick then add ½ cup more coconut milk till you get your desired consistency.

Add sweetener & Flavor

  • Once you prepared the perfect consistency mixture of coconut milk & chia seeds, add honey or maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Prepare For Toppings

  • Take two bowls or glasses and divide this mixture into two.
  • Add chopped kiwi fruits (puree if using pureed kiwi) and silvered almonds.
  • Add chopped kiwi fruits (puree if using pureed kiwi) and silvered almonds.
  • Serve this kiwi chia seed pudding chilled.

Notes

Serving suggestions
Kiwi chia pudding served BEST while chilled in the fridge.
I added cut kiwi fruit, but you can make layers with chia seeds, & different fruits while serving. Layers make a great parfait recipe.
The addition of granola makes a healthy combination with this kiwi chia pudding. Again you can serve it as a parfait.
 
Storing suggestions
It is a make-ahead recipe and can be stored in the fridge for 4-5 days easily. Prepare and store in containers in portions. Serve immediately in breakfast, snacks, or dessert time.
 
Tips
  • While soaking, stir a few times in order to prevent lump formation. This is very important, as the mixture thickens, it is difficult to remove lumps.
  • A minimum of an hour is a must soak chia seeds.
  • You can use honey, stevia as well for the sweetness.
  • Chill for 30 minutes before serving.
  • Kiwi chia pudding is one of the make-ahead recipes.
  • Use the extra quantity of coconut milk to make it thin if the soaked mixture is very very thick. Adjust consistency as required.
  • Use ripe kiwis to add, else the tart flavor may ruin the overall taste.
  • Almond milk is thin, so chia seeds pudding has a thinner consistency with it.
