Whip up turmeric coconut milk chia seed pudding the night before so you have a quick breakfast in the morning or a healthy afternoon snack. Vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.
I need to eat every few hours or I get HANGRY. Are you like this too?
You can ask both my mom and Travis, they have both experienced the hangry monster that comes out when I don’t keep to my eating schedule. I keep granola bars in my purse and bananas in my shopping bag to avoid this issue at all costs!
When I’m home, I always have an afternoon snack before dinner:
- Avocado caprese salad
- Veggie wraps
- Fruit salsa
- Avocado toast
- Zucchini pizza bites
- Blueberry mango smoothie
- Loaded nut & seed granola bars
Turmeric Coconut Milk Chia Seed Pudding
I used to only eat chia seed pudding for breakfast but I started doubling my recipe so I would have enough for an afternoon snack too. It’s easy, tasty, convenient and filling because of the protein in the chia seeds. Did you know that you get almost 5 grams of protein per ounce of chia seeds?!
I like to layer the turmeric coconut milk chia seed pudding with whatever fruit I have on hand to change up the consistency. I don’t mind the seedy texture but when it’s mixed with the fruit it tastes like a parfait. I used my favorite satsuma orange slices (because they’re in season) but any fruit would be delicious!
If you don’t like the soaked seed texture, you can blend all the ingredients together before you let the pudding soak and it will turn out much smoother, like real pudding. It’s just an extra step, so I usually skip it because I always seem to be short on time.
What’s Up With Turmeric?
Turmeric is everywhere!
People put it in their milk (golden milk, anyone?), smoothies, soup, salad dressing, curry dishes and they even take Curcumin as a supplement because it’s so good for you. It’s an anti-inflammatory, it boosts brain function and helps to fight off a myriad of diseases that attack your body.
I added turmeric to my coconut milk chia seed pudding mainly for the health benefits but it also gave it a beautiful color and a delicious earthy flavor that ended up being really tasty.
I added kiwi slices too because they’re loaded with vitamin C, even more than a whole orange, but that’s optional too!
Healthy Snacks On The Go
Turmeric coconut milk chia seed pudding makes a great healthy snack on the go. You can pack it in a mason jar and take it with you! If you’re one of those people who dislike mason jars then any glass container will do. Try to stick with glass if possible to avoid the plastic containers that might leach into your food. I recently went through all of our kitchen stuff and got rid of all the plastic and switched to glass Snapware. There really is no excuse to not eat healthy when you’re out and about.
Add chia seeds, coconut milk, turmeric, and maple syrup into a bowl, mix well to combine.
Cover, put in the fridge and let it sit for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Spoon the chia pudding into a tall glass, alternating layers with fruit.
