Aaaahhhh Summer.  The perfect time for a light, healthy breakfast.  Little bubbles of chia joy were immersed in creamy coconut, laced with honey and a hint of lime.  Topped off with the most stunning seasonal berries you couldn’t help but feel good after these babies.  Healthy = Happy (It also means bacon is on the menu tomorrow morning…..all about balance, right?)


Prep time:  2  Minutes       Setting time:    Overnight in the Fridge              $$  Medium Budget


Serves 4


400ml tin of coconut milk (I prefer to not use light)

1/3 cup of chia seeds

1 tbs of honey, warmed

A squeeze of lime

Assorted berries or fruit of your choice

1/2 cup of toasted coconut flakes*


Place the honey in the bottom of a medium sized bowl and zap it in the microwave for 20 seconds.  Pour in the coconut milk and add a little squeeze of lime and whisk until the ingredients have combined.  Dip your finger in and have a little taste.  Yum.  Pour in the chia seed, stir to combine and use a spatula to clean the sides of the bowl.  Cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours but overnight is probably better.  Stir once or twice so that the Chia on top also gets immersed in the liquid.


To serve, divide the pudding mix between 4 serving bowls or glasses and top with toasted coconut, berries or fruit of your choice and then another sprinkle of coconut.


* Toast the coconut in a dry pan, moving it around in the pan frequently until golden.  Allow to cool before serving.
