Happy New Year! It’s 2018. This year is going to be GREAT! I’m making it a priority to slow down, breathe, and enjoy being in the present. 2018 will bring some exciting things for you as well; I have a long list of recipes I want to share with you this year! Some of items on the list include red velvet macaroons, red velvet whoopie pies, the most amazing lemon cake ever, my famous orange rolls, and decadent chocolate cupcakes. Plus, in a few months I have some really big news to share with you as well! But you’ll have to be patient for that… 😊
Chia seeds were all the rage last year, and that will carry on into 2018. If you haven’t had chia seeds, you’re missing out! Not only do they offer great health benefits, more on that below, but they provide amazing texture! Remember my rant about food and texture? If not, you can read that on my Healthy Homemade Granola post.
Fun facts and health benefits of chia seeds:
- 1 ounce serving of chia seeds contains 5 grams of omega-3’s. Omega-3’s are great for brain health.
- One serving of chia seeds provides a third of your daily fiber. Sooooo… be careful! 😂
- You don’t have to grind chia seeds, like you do flaxseed.
- Chia seeds are high in calcium!
See! Chia seeds are good. Go buy a bag of them stat! Here’s a link to the kind I use.

Healthy and delicious overnight coconut chia pudding is easy to make and tastes amazing!
- 1 3/4 cups coconut milk, (1-13.5 oz can coconut milk)
- 1/3 cup chia seeds*
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- fresh or frozen fruit for topping**
In a medium size bowl add the coconut milk. Whisk until it becomes smooth.
Add the honey and vanilla to the bowl.
Whisk in the chia seeds. Whisk until everything is evenly combined.
Cover, and place in the fridge. It's best to refrigerate overnight or for 8 hours, so that the chia seeds have time to absorb the liquid.
Remove from the fridge and place in serving containers.
Top with fresh fruit, additional honey, nuts, or shredded coconut before serving. Be creative!
*1/3 cup offers a more firm consistency. If you'd like the pudding to be more "pudding" and less firm, only add 1/4 cup of chia seeds.
**You can top this with whatever you choose. You could top with shredded coconut, nuts, an extra drizzle of honey. Be creative!
