Coconut Chia Pudding with Maple

I LOVE coconut chia pudding, it's creaminess, it’s texture. I find it's the perfect sweet option for breakfast as it's protein packed and keeps me going until lunchtime. I love to serve it with pure maple and fresh fruit.

I took some inspiration from one of my favourite cafes in Melbourne, ‘Kettle Black’. If you live in Melbourne or plan on travelling here, it's a must visit. Stunning interiors, wonderful staff and divine food. My favourite item on their menu is their coconut chia pudding. They also serve theirs with maple, fresh fruits and beautiful edible flowers.

Chia pudding is so versatile, the topping options are endless. You could serve it with maple syrup and your favourite fresh fruits (as the recipe suggests), or try something a little different; fresh strawberries and raspberries with a little maple that can then be layered within the chia pudding (so yum). You could also add a tablespoon or two of cacao powder to the chia mixture before placing it in the fridge to set overnight, and then serve it with grilled banana and cacao nibs.

What are some of your favourite chia pudding flavours and toppings?

Enjoy!
