Coconut chia seed pudding with nice cream

Nice cream has quickly become my favorite breakfast but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up. Chiapudding is a great breakfast for when you are in a hurry but almost always have time to eat my breakfast so I decided to make some coconut milk chiapudding with nice cream. This combination was just amazing, I loved it so much.

To make the chia seed pudding, you will need:

-1 cup coconut milk
-2 to 3 tablespoons chia seeds
-Agave
-Vanilla bean

  1. I wanted to keep the chia pudding as simple as it could be, so in a mason jar combine the coconut milk and the chia seeds. Then sweeten the pudding with the agave and add in as vanilla bean as you want. Let this sit overnight and in the morning your chia pudding is done, this is great just to eat as is with some fruit.

To make the nice cream you need to freeze 3 bananas and blend them up in the morning with a splash of soy milk until it becomes creamy and the consistency of an ice cream.

I poured the nice cream in a bowl and added the chia pudding on top, I then decorated my bowl with red berries, dates, raw cacao nibs and flax seeds. I am being truly honest with you when I say that this was so easy and fast but most important so delicious. I will definitely make this again and of course try this with different flavors.

Chia seeds are filled with antioxidants, all the carbs in them are fiber and are high in protein. They will also help you lose weight and are high in omega 3 fatty acids. The bananas in the nice cream will keep you full until lunch time and the great thing about eating bananas is that help overcome depression-maybe eat this on Monday’s?- due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted in serotonin, the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter. Or so it says on google but I believe google so bananas are great to eat on those depressing awful Mondays.

Have you tried nice cream or chia pudding before? If you haven’t, go make it right now. Even if you read this in the middle of the night, just get of the computer, smartphone or ipad and go make this. You won’t regret it, I promise.

See you soon,

Birgit
