Guest Blogger - Berry Coconut Chia Pudding by Claire Power

Claire Power is one wellness babe to watch, she is putting her passions of health and cooking to good use to inspire others to get in their kitchens and to start cooking their way to better health.

I absolutely love any babe who is out there inspiring and empowering other women to look after themselves and live up to their truest potential.

Claire has been kind enough to share a "tote-able" recipe for us for day 15 of the Get Active, Nourish and Be Grateful challenge that Kat and I are running for the month of July.

Claire thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us today!!  How did the inspiration for this recipe come about??

Chia puddings are popping up everywhere on social media and on television due to the new ads for the Chia Co company with brand ambassador Kelly Slater.  I think it's great that these little seeds of goodness gets some more publicity.  They are so nutritious and delicious!

However, it is very easy and cheap to make it so you should try to make your own at home.  There are different ways o do them using different milks or using mashed banana.  The flavour combinations are endless, mango, apple, berries, cacao, matcha and so on.

Berry Coconut Chia Puddings recipe:

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds;
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (you could use almond milk, cashew milk or cow's milk too);
  • 1 vanilla bean;
  • dash of cinnamon;
  • optional: honey or rice male syrup; and
  • toppings: fresh or frozen berries, nuts, bananas use whatever you feel like!
  1. Mix chia seeds and milk;
  2. Add vanilla & cinnamon;
  3. Leave overnight until the chia seeds absorb the milk and become a jelly like texture;
  4. Top with fresh fruit, berries, nuts... and
  5. Serve cold.
