Coconut Chia Pudding

Tapioca is making a comeback—with a new twist: The addition of chia seeds has rekindled a love of this retro food by making the textured pudding healthy.


  • 1 400-mL can light coconut milk

  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar, or raw sugar

  • pinch salt

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds


  • sliced plums, or other seasonal fruit

  • coconut


  • Shake can of coconut milk vigorously to mix the liquids and solids. Pour into a bowl.

  • Add coconut or raw sugar and a pinch of salt; stir to combine. Stir in 1/3 cup chia seeds.

  • Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hr (but as long as overnight) or until chia seeds have absorbed the liquid and pudding is thick.

  • Top servings of pudding with sliced plums, or other seasonal fruit, and coconut.
