This pudding is a nutritional powerhouse! The omega-3 fatty acids in coconut milk and chia reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Chia seeds have plentiful antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium. Coconuts are easily digestible for most, and are naturally nutritious, fiber-rich, high in vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
The maple syrup is complimentary to the chia taste, and it dissolves well when mixed together. This is a delicious comfort food that passes the kid taste test, too!
one 13.5oz. can coconut milk (or milk substitute of choice)
