Chia Colada March 22 2014 by Simone Denny

Chica Colada Recipe

Ok so it's been a while since I've had a cocktail.....like quite a while! Fertility prep, plus 9 months preggie time and now nursing. I've never been a big drinker but I have to say, every now and then I kind of feel like a drink :) The irony of the name of this blog post is that a chia colada isn't even a drink, let a long an alcoholic drink! Of course in true Simone style it's a healthy little morsel of omega goodness in a glass (a chia pudding really) that reminds me of pina colada. I clearly need a holiday somewhere exotic with a cocktail on the beach.
  
INGREDIENTS:
  • 11/2 cups of large cup of chopped pineapple (half for the recipe half for the topping)
  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup of light coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut nectar (optional)
  • Toasted Coconut Flakes (optional)

PROCEDURE:

Roughly blend 1 cup of the pineapple with a whizz stick (keep the remaining pineapple for the top). Combine chia seeds, milk and coconut nectar in a jar. Refrigerate over night or for at least 4 hours. Once the pudding is set, top with chopped pineapple and toasted coconut flakes.  

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
