Toasted Coconut and Pineapple Chia Pudding

Ingredients:

- 1cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- pineapple (cut into bite sized pieces).

Directions:

1. In a glass bowl, combine the almond milk, vanilla extract and chia seeds together. Ensure that you are mixing the two ingredients well, so that they can soak evenly. Place a lid over the mixture and then place in fridge for a minimum of 1 hour (preferably 5-6 hours).
2. In a pan, toast the shredded coconut and cool. Place it in an air tight container so that you can use it later (for up to a week).
3. Prepare your pineapple.
4. When the chia seed pudding is ready, you will see that it will look like the picture above. It will resemble a tapioca texture (with a crunch from, obviously the chia seeds). Add the pineapple and toasted coconut and enjoy!!

* For those of you who will find this a bit bland, you can always drizzle some agave, honey or maple syrup on top. For me, I find the sweetness of the pineapple just perfect.

I hope you enjoy this healthy treat! You can enjoy this for breakfast or any other time as a snack - it is so nutritious and pretty filling :)

XO, M.
