Tropical chia pudding

You know those super organized people who pack their lunch, prepare breakfast and clea. The house before bed so that the morning goes as smoothly as possible? I aspire to be one of those people. Unfortunately, im a morning person which means when bedtime is coming up im miserable and exhausted.

On a few rare occasions, especially as I've fallen more and more in love with meal prep and freezer meals (zero waste, of course), I manage to get breakfast ready ahead of time. This cool recipe you can make 24 hours ahead of time (I haven't waited longer than that, let me know if you do). Or the night before. But it needs to refrigerate for at least four hours so please plan ahead appropriately.

This also makes for a good "dessert".

You Will Need:
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
Chopped mango, kiwi, pineapple and sliced almonds for topping. Flaked coconut would be good too. Mix and match as you please.

Mix all ingredients, including your topping, in a jar.
Let sit unrefrigerated for about an hour.
Shake it really good than refrigerate for 4+ hours.
When ready to eat, shake it and dig in.

See, wasn't that easy?

Chia pudding is a total cheater breakfast. :)
