Do you guys remember the coconut mango chia seed pudding I posted a little while back? It was so good it got me thinking, and I had to experiment with other flavor combinations. My husband LOVES coconut cream pie, so this was a natural option.
I am not a huge breakfast food eater, so I loved having an option that tastes like dessert, but is actually healthy, and that I could make in advance so that in the morning hustle and bustle I am not trying to come up with something for me to eat while my kids have pancakes or cereal.
But it does not have to be eaten plain, I stirred in some vanilla greek yogurt, fresh berries, and granola, and had it for breakfast several days in a row, mixing in different stuff each day so I wouldn’t get bored. Then I ate it plain as dessert. Honestly, it is just yummy. Make some, keep some in your fridge, and eat it! It has great health benefits and tastes amazing.
