Coconut Milk Chia Seeds Pudding with Mulberry Compote
A healthy bowl of Chia Seeds soaked overnight in Coconut Milk topped with ohhhh so so delicious Mulberry Compote!!
Such a vibrant and healthy start to my day, isn’t it?
When you start your day with this deliciousness you kinda know that you will have an awesome day!!
I have shared my way of making this bowl. Sweetness and nuttiness of Coconut Milk is perfectly balanced by the tartness of Mulberries.
However, you can use Almond milk or any other milk of your choice. You can use fruits of your choice. Any other type of Berries or Mangoes work equally well with this pudding. Same goes with toppings too. You can top it up with whatever nuts you like. Sometimes I add walnuts and cashews too. I have added Stevia as sweetener, you can add Honey or Agave syrup or brown sugar, whatever is your preference.
There’s no fixed way to do it right. Just tweak the recipe the way you like.

COCONUT MILK CHIA SEEDS PUDDING
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Soaking time: 5-6 hours, preferably overnight
Coconut Milk- 400 milliliters
Chia Seeds- 4 tablespoon
Sweetener- 2 sachets of Stevia

We will start by soaking the Chia seeds in the milk.
In a bowl put milk, sweetener and chia seeds. Mix them well.
Keep the bowl in the fridge for minimum 5-6 hours or overnight.
Next morning, take the chia seeds bowl out of the fridge.
