Easy Coconut Chia Pudding
Make this Easy Coconut Chia Pudding and have it as a wholesome breakfast, snack or dessert any time in the day. I love the fact that it&rsquos delicious, filling and super easy to make. You can be creative with the toppings you prefer for your chia pudding. Try different kinds of fruits as toppings or some nuts. One of my kids actually loves adding some chocolate chips to this.
How Healthy is Chia Pudding?
Let&rsquos talk about chia seeds benefits and why they are healthy and actually good for you. They are rich in soluble fiber, which helps regulate blood sugar, gut health, and cholesterol levels. Chia seeds are also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids which helps fights inflammation. Often times, they refer to it as a superfood because of how nutrient-rich it is with so many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In need of some calcium and iron in your diet? Make this Coconut chia pudding.
Is Chia Pudding Good for Weight loss?
A diet that&rsquos high in fiber is usually recommended for those looking to lose weight. Often times when we hear the word fiber we automatically think veggies. Right? Well, your diet doesn&rsquot have to be loaded with just veggies. It is recommended through some research that eating 30 g of fiber daily may help you lose weight. 2 tablespoons of chia seeds as 10 g of fiber. Which is about 40 percent of the recommended daily intake of fiber as part of a healthy diet.
What does Chia Pudding Taste like?
Chia seeds itself has no taste really. Some may say they are an earthy taste to it but chia seeds absorb whatever liquid you add to it. Thus making it into Chia pudding. So, this means that you can make your chia pudding taste whatever you like it to be. Pretty much whatever liquids or flavors you add to it is what you will get. Adding vanilla almond milk and some maple syrup, for example, will make it taste like vanilla and somewhat sweet. Be creative and your favorite flavors onto your chia pudding. This coconut chia pudding has a slight coconut and vanilla flavor and is also sweet.

So, why eat chia seeds?
I was first introduced to chia seeds in the form of “Chia Pets” advertisements during daytime TV as a kid.
At the time, I had ZERO clue those chia seeds were something you could consume and were actually nutritious.
Here are a few reasons why chia seeds are a good thing to eat:
- One ounce of chia seeds (two tablespoons) has 6 grams of protein and 10 grams of dietary fiber.
- Chia seeds are a complete protein, which means they contain all nine essential amino acids that the human body can’t produce.
- They’re the richest plant based source of omega-3 fatty acids.
- They are really cool!! There are not many other edible things that can go from seed to jelly goo with only some liquid added. You can mix them with any liquid to make a gel, jam, pudding or even eat them once sprouted as microgreens.
Whisk the coconut milk, agave syrup/honey and vanilla extract until smooth. Stir in the chia seeds and divide the mixture into four small pots or glasses.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until it’s reached a thick pudding-like consistency. You can leave it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Remove from fridge, add toppings, scattered cinnamon and serve with a drizzle of honey if your feeling indulgent!

Mango and a low histamine diet
One of the more frustrating aspects of a low histamine diet is the debate over the histamine content of some foods, and mango is one of them. The SIGHI list (which I use most often) rates it as 1 for histamine on a scale of 0-3. It has a ? as a liberator and a note that states ‘to be debated. Is often well tolerated’.
A little research of other histamine lists actually had mango as low histamine, and one stated that it had antihistamine properties. All very confusing to have conflicting advice isn’t it! I would suggest only trying the recipe if you know you are OK with mango, or under the guidance of a dietician if you are unsure.
The Perfect Whole30 Breakfast
I started making this Whole30 Breakfast Chia Pudding while doing the Whole30 last year. I actually didn’t turn to this because I was tired of eggs- it was more of a time issue! I was back at work with an infant at home, and giving up my morning playing with him and getting him dressed to take the time to scramble eggs just wasn’t going to happen!
I was surprised to see how many readers loved this recipe as much as I do! It’s a great grab and go breakfast option. 1 recipe takes about 5 minutes to put together (and 30 mins or longer to “soak”), and it makes 3-4 breakfasts. When I was working, I would mix this up in the evening and split it between 4 jars. In the morning, all I had to do was toss in some fresh fruit and a spoonful of nut butter, screw the lid back on, and toss it in my bag to take to work.
If you’re not doing the Whole30 or on a Paleo diet, you can also try these overnight oats recipes that use chia seeds – try my basic Overnight Chia and Oats, or this delicious Brownie Batter Chia and Oats.
If you are on the Whole30, and want a tasty snack idea, try these Baked Plantain Chips. They are a lifesaver!

Coconut chia pudding - I
Coconut chia pudding - I really enjoyed this chia pudding! I made a half quantity for a single serve for breakfast, I don't think the half quantity would serve three in my household, but then I really like my breakfast! The pudding was still runny at the five minute mark, but I just put it on "Gentle stir setting" , got dressed, came back and it was perfect. I served with strawberries and blueberries, it would also be nice with the addition of Greek yogurt. Five stars! Thanks for sharing!

Mango and Chia Overnight Oats
In a perfect world there would always be a tasty breakfast waiting for us in the kitchen. Something healthy and delicious that is just sitting there, waiting to be eaten. Sounds slightly delusional to wish for that but it&rsquos actually possible. All you have to do is a few minutes of prepping and you&rsquore set for a couple of days. I usually enjoy my breakfast at home but this one also travels very well. In fact this jar of mango and chia overnight oats is the perfect breakfast on the go, if you need it to be.
There are so many variations of this breakfast and even though the pb&j version will always be my favourite I am a huge fan of mangoes these days. Last week I bought an entire crate of those tasty fruits so now I am adding them to nearly every dish. Well, to tell you the truth I might have gone overboard with the amount that I bought but there are so many things you can do with them ranging from mango smoothies to mango sorbets. They are so versatile that you could pair them up with nearly anything so why not start the day by adding them to your breakfast. I tend to make these little jars ahead since they can last a couple of days in the fridge &ndash theoretically.
Mangoes are deliciously sweet and creamy when pureed so they make a tasty addition to your oats. Once you give this little jar a stir it will taste like there is actual cream in it. If you like you can cut half the mango into cubes instead of blending the whole fruit. This is something I tend to do, not only for looks but also because it adds an interesting texture. In any case this is a tasty breakfast no matter what you do and it will fuel you nicely for a good start in the day. While the mango and oats provide a nice portion of fiber and carbs, the chia seeds give you an extra boost of nutrients with a big variety of health benefits.
