First of all: chia seeds are awesome. Really. They’re little nutrient-packed miracles that were first introduced to my when reading Born to Run. Boy, did I love that book. And boy did I forget quickly about the chia seeds. Until they started popping up in recipes all over the place: pudding, smooties, granola bars. I mean, I’ll take any excuse to sneak in a sweet bite, but sweets with some healthy superfood? Well, I’m your girl.

For more detailed information on WHY the chia seeds are as awesome as they are, Serena from domesticate me has a great article HERE.

Mix the seeds, coconut flakes and cinnamon, add coconut milk and water. Stir well and let the mixture rest for at least a few hours covered with cling wrap. I find letting it rest overnight is easiest and you’ll have breakfast ready (yeah, look at me, all put together and stuff). Don’t be surprised at the ratio of very little chia seeds and coconut flakes to – seemingly – a lot of water.

Before munching away at your chia pudding give it a good stir, add the lime juice and chop up one banana and top your mix with it.

Enjoy!
