Winter Grapefruit and Pomegranate Chia Pudding

January 21, 2016

Chia pudding is an easy "feel good" treat that anyone can prepare.  Chia seeds can absorb liquid up to ten times their size which works wonderfully as a natural thickener.  The seeds are combined with coconut milk and topped with fresh winter fruits.  If you are feeling indulgent, add a few shards of chopped chocolate.

Winter Grapefruit and Pomegranate Chia Pudding


1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/3 chia seeds
2 tsp. vanilla bean paste
2 tbsp honey
pinch of fine sea salt
2 grapefruits, peeled and segmented
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
1/4 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate (optional)


Step 1: In a large bowl, add coconut milk, yogurt, chia seeds, vanilla bean paste, honey and salt.  Whisk ingredients together until well combined.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit 6 to 8 hours or overnight.

Step 2: When serving, spoon pudding into cups and top with grapefruit segments, pomegranate seeds and sliced almonds.  Garnish with chocolate, if using.
