Looking for a sweet treat or an easy breakfast idea? Coconut milk chia pudding is super easy to make — it’s just a matter of stirring together a few ingredients! My kids love this for breakfast since it’s sweet, but I love it because it’s also filled with healthy fats and a little protein. We usually serve this pudding with fresh blueberries, sliced bananas or whatever fruit we have on hand. Nuts are also a nice addition.

If you are following the GAPS diet, you would need to substitute honey for the the maple syrup. Also, chia seeds are considered an “advanced” food on the GAPS diet. This means that you’ve already worked through intro, made your way up to Full GAPS and have experienced significant gut healing. I suppose this would be a good treat for those of you making your way toward starting the GAPS diet as well.
