Chia seed pudding is not a tremendous favorite dish for my son. He says it feels gooey, so I added coconut slices while serving. The thinly sliced coconut pieces add crunchiness to every bite.
It's no wonder this coconut milk chia pudding recipe has become one of my son's favorites. New recipes are emerging when attempting to respond to the complaints.
You know, new recipes are born when attempting to respond to complaints. I'm also happy that I can include chia seeds in his menu.
- Due to the easy accessibility, I have used canned coconut milk. However, you may use fresh or any form of coconut milk.
- Coconut slices are now available in all leading grocery stores. These are dry coconut slices, and they have a robust nutty flavor. They can also be available in the name of 'Coconut Chips'
- I see tender coconut slices in our Costco store; they work fine for this canned coconut milk chia pudding recipe.
- I have added fresh coconut slices in the frozen section in local Indian stores. These taste great and have a subtle nutty flavor.
- If you cannot get any of the above ways, get a fresh coconut from your stores. Break open with a sharp-edged tool, and use the knife to remove coconut pieces from the shell. Then, slice them thinly. The leftover coconut can be frozen in a ziplock bag. It stays good for a couple of months in a freezer.
- When buying a fresh coconut, choose white-shelled coconut over dark brown coconut shells. White-shelled coconuts are tender coconuts, and they are suitable for both rich coconut water and thin flesh. Dark brown coconut shells are matured coconut and have a robust nutty flavor.
- I have used a pinch of salt in this coconut chia pudding recipe, but you may use any other artificial or natural sugar or no sugar at all. All these versions taste great.
- If you do not wish to add coconut milk, you may substitute it with almond or soy milk.
