{Not Your Basic} Vegan Coconut + Apple Chia Pudding

It’s not just another chia pudding.  This is decadent, warming, perfect for Fall, and might be your new addiction.

Aside from being rich in healthy fats, this dish is a great source of plant-based protein, and is fibre-packed, and you know how much I love fibre.  Fibre is the key to weight management, digestion, heart health, and hormone balance, just to name a few.

With November being home to our plant-based challenge, #nextbitenovember, I thought the timing would be perfect to share this recipe. It’s a favourite with my nutrition clients and it ends up on most of my meal plans.

Vegan coconut chia apple pudding

In a mason jar combine:

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Place a lid on the jar and shake until combined. Refrigerate overnight or for several hours until the chia seeds expand and create a pudding consistency.

When ready, remove pudding from jar and either warm on stove or serve in a bowl,  chilled.

For the topping:

  • Sautee 1/2 red apple in 1 Tblsp coconut oil until soft
  •  add 1/8 tsp each cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg

Serve over the pudding, warm.

Stay cozy this winter, friends! And, if you try this recipe or want to share your plant-based creations this month, upload them to social media and tag us with #nextbitenovember.
