Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk


This chia seed pudding with coconut milk is a healthy alternative to processed desserts. Chia seeds make great desserts and are high in omega-3s. This recipe uses agave (or stevia, if you prefer) as a sweetener instead of sugar. Stir again before serving and top with fresh fruit and another dash of cinnamon or spices.
