Apple Chia Pudding with Homemade Coconut Milk

wp_20161010_004-2Of all the seeds available, chia seed is probably my favourite. I love the jelly like texture when they soak up the liquid, and my body loves it. I have it everyday in my porridge.

Recently I have been soaking the seeds overnight. Usually 10 minutes (or less) is enough for them to form the jelly, but overnight soaking make the seeds swell up even more, creating an amazingly satisfying, volumey texture.

Together with my favourite fruits of this season, the apples, with some coconut milk, this combination is sooooo good! I never seem to get bored of apples, even though I’ve been eating a few of them every single day. Every time I eat them, I feel so happy for their deliciousness…

Ingredients (for one):

1 tbsp chia seeds

6 tbsp water

1 or 2 chopped into chunks

A small handful or more of dried fruits such as raisins and chopped dates, depending on how sweet the apple is

Cinnamon

for the coconut milk (makes 150ml. you can of course use any shop bought milk!)

2tbsp coconut butter

150ml warm water

Method:

  1. Place the chia seeds and water in a glass jar and leave overnight in the fridge.
  2. The next day, cook the apples with your choice of dried fruits on a low heat in a pan. You need a little water to soften the apples.
  3. Place the cooked apples on top of the jellied chia seeds.
  4. If you are making your coconut milk, place the coconut butter with warm water. Make sure the water is warm, not cold, so the coconut butter can melt.
  5. Pour some of the coconut milk on top of the apple and dash with cinnamon. Tuck in!
