Kiwi slices floating among a sea of coconut chia pudding. These kiwi coconut chia popsicles are a satisfying breakfast treat!
I didn’t plan on sharing the recipe for these kiwi coconut chia popsicles. I posted a photo of it on Instagram on St. Patrick’s day simply because I wanted to share something green. People went crazy for the photo! (Well, crazy for my standards. I haven’t hit anything close to viral. I’m working on it…) People loved it, and when asked for the recipe, of course I had to deliver.
I eat chia pudding bowls on the regular. Like ALL the time regular. I crave it almost every morning. It never gets boring because I always switch up the fruits and toppings.
Often, I’ll make it with almond or soy milk. But on days when I’m feeling particularly awesome (meaning: days when I feel skinny), I’ll make it with coconut milk. Not the light coconut milk you find sold in cartons. I’m talking about the good stuff. Canned coconut milk! The tasty, creamy, and fatty one. YUM.
Chia pudding is magical. As the chia seeds soak and plump up in the delicious coconut milk, it absorbs its tropical flavors. The end result is this rich, silky pudding. One day I made too much. Rather than store it in the fridge, I poured the chia pudding into popsicles molds and popped them in the freezer. Frozen chia? Is that good? YES. It’s amazing. Slushy kiwi slices, tropical coconut, all frozen in a portable stick?
The rest is history. I’ve been making these chia popsicles will all sorts of fruits. Mix it up with pineapples, strawberries, or mango. I can’t wait for stone fruit season so I can experiment with peaches, plums, and apricots!
Summer… are you here yet?
