Have this low glycemic pudding as desert, or breakfast! This is just as good for you as it tastes! This can either be very much like Tapioca with the whole seeds, or pudding by using ground seeds. You choose your texture and enjoy a quick 10 minute desert for the whole family!

1 can organic coconut milk
4 tablespoons of chia seed (whole or ground depending on the consistency you like)
1 teaspoonful ground vanilla or 1/2 teaspoonful organic vanilla extract

  • Combine coconut milk and chia seed. Stir together for 1 minute
  • Allow it to sit for 5 minutes
  • Add 1 teaspoonful ground vanilla, or 1/2 teaspoonful organic vanilla extract
  • Spoon into desert containers and serve with a sprinkle of vanilla powder or fresh ground nutmeg

Letting it sit overnight will give it the solid texture of most packaged tapioca snack foods
Serves 4
Prep time 10 minutes

  1. Chocolate tapioca or pudding: Add 1 teaspoonful cacao powder and 2 teaspoonfuls maple syrup
  2. Fruit: Make this the night ahead and in the morning have this as cereal with 1 whole banana and 1/2 cup blueberries. The antioxidants from the blueberries can support the liver and help to remove heavy metals trapped in cells.
  3. Apples & Cinnamon Hearty Breakfast: Make this the night ahead: Follow the initial recipe and add 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1  large green apple, 1 teaspoonful cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoonful clove, 1/8 teaspoonful fine ground star anise powder, 1 tablespoon maple syrup. Let this all stand overnight in the refrigerator. This is a very filling breakfast, and it also supports the immune system, gut flora, and has the full days supply of the best fatty acids to support energy levels through the day.
