Do you like piña coladas? Are you praying I don’t ask the question that usually follows that one? Well, you’re in luck. Instead, I’m going to ask if you also like chia pudding.
If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you’re going to love this piña colada chia pudding!
Summer’s almost here, and nothing says summer quite like a piña colada.
If you’re looking to enjoy piña colada flavors without alcohol and all the calories that typically accompany those flavors, this chia pudding will hit the spot.
It’s cold, refreshing, delicious, and super easy to make. It contains a good amount of protein and plenty of fiber, too, so it will keep you satisfied way longer than a sugary frozen drink will. Oh, and it can easily be made plant-based by using plant-based protein powder instead of collagen peptides.
Let’s get into the recipe!
- 3 Tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice (I used the juice from 1 8-oz can of pineapple)
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1 Tablespoon honey or sugar-free sweetener
- 1 scoop collagen peptides or vanilla protein powder (I use these)
- Coconut chips (optional, for topping)
- Diced pineapple (optional, for topping)
- Combine chia seeds with coconut milk, pineapple juice, lime juice, honey, and collagen peptides in a Tupperware container or mason jar
- Stir to combine all ingredients (or put the lid on the container and shake it)
- Store in the fridge for at least two hours
- Top with toasted coconut, diced pineapple, and your other favorite chia pudding toppings
- Enjoy! (This recipe makes two servings)
