Do you go into full-on fall mode the second pumpkin spice everything hits store shelves in mid-August, orrrr do you stick with summer vibes as long as you possibly can?
I’m clinging to summer as long as I can! Maybe it’s because I’m LIVING for the warm weather and bright colors of the season. Or maybe… it’s because of this Tropical Chia Pudding recipe. I’m a little obsessed.
I don’t think I’ve ever met anything tropical that I didn’t like. And you guys, chia pudding + tropical fruit = heavennnn!
If you’ve never had chia pudding before, this recipe is a must!!
It’s crazy how easy it is! You just combine almond milk and chia seeds and let them sit overnight. As the seeds and milk chill, the mixture thickens into a cool, creamy pudding-like texture. Adding the mango, pineapple, and coconut flakes makes me feel like I should be eating this breakfast on a beach somewhere.
I love prepping a few servings of chia pudding at a time so I can easily grab a jar for breakfast or a snack. Chia seeds are amaaaazing – they’re packed with fiber (11 grams per ounce!), protein, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and other minerals. Pretty crazy for a tiny seed!
