Here is a dessert, or breakfast treat that involves no cooking whatsoever, is gluten free and packed full of protein, nutrients and antioxidants. It sounds too good to be true, but it also tastes fantastic. The flavor reminds me of a creamy custard or maybe tapioca pudding.

Chia seeds themselves can easily be found in the health food section of your local supermarket, however they originate from Mexico, where the Mayan people have been consuming them for thousands of years.

Add the chia seeds, and maple syrup or honey, then replace the lid and shake the jar well. The recipe will turn out fine without any sweetener, if you prefer just the coconut flavor on its own.

Shake the mixture


Let the sealed jar sit in the fridge for 2 - 3 hours, so that the chia seeds absorb the coconut liquid. They should expand to four times their original size and become translucent and gelatinous.

Serve your Coconut, Strawberry and Chia Puddings chilled for a gluten free dessert or super healthy breakfast treat. You'll be pleasantly surprised at just how delicious such a simple recipe can be. Enjoy.
