My Coconut Yoghurt Chia Pudding has a lovely smooth and creamy texture that you will love. This pudding is a great way to start the day as it’s packed with many nutrients and will keep you full for hours.
Coconut yoghurt gives such a delicious flavour to the pudding but that’s not all, it has many health benefits. It’s a probiotic-rich food and is a good source of calcium, healthy fats, vitamins C, potassium, zinc, selenium, magnesium and B-vitamins. When purchasing coconut yoghurt from supermarkets just check it doesn’t contain any additives, you can find my Pot Set Vanilla Coconut Yoghurt recipe HERE. Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega 3 fats, dietary fibre and protein, and are also packed with a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Place in the fridge for two hours or overnight until the mixture has thickened and all the liquid has been absorbed.
To serve, spoon half of the yoghurt chia mixture between two glasses or jars. Add some of the berries on top of each and then divide the remaining chia mixture over the berries.
