I will forever be grateful for my friend, Abby’s, suggestion to create a recipe for a key lime pie flavoured chia pudding.
When she first made the suggestion, I was like, “YAWN. BORING. Who hasn’t heard of key lime pie!?”
Of course, I didn’t say this to my dear friend, but those were my immediate thoughts…
Like I said, I’m on this chia pudding creating kick because the internet (and, therefore, your lives) are in serious lack of fun, ADVENTUROUS chia pudding recipes and I am on a mission to provide them to you. And, honestly, a key lime pie flavour just sounded kind of boring…
Not vanilla boring, but a been-there-done-that kind of boring.
But then I couldn’t get her idea out of my head, so I knew I had to create it for her. And I didn’t want to be one of those friends who asked for an opinion/suggestion and then ignored the response given to me.
Ever have those friends?
Yeah, me too. And I don’t plan on being one of them!
So, thank you, Abby, for your suggestion to make a key lime pie flavour chia pudding. I am sure I will say this about many more of the recipes I create, but this is hands down one of the best recipes I’ve ever created and I really hope you make it! It’s that good!
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk, from the can (I use Aroy-D)
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- Liquid stevia (I use NuNaturals), optional
- 1/2 large soft avocado
- 1/2 large lime, juiced
- Simple Mills sea salt almond flour crackers, for topping
- At least 30 minutes before serving (however, overnight is preferred), combine the coconut milk, water, and chia seeds together in a glass jar with a lid. Sweeten with stevia if you would like it a little bit sweet! I personally added 4 drops of NuNaturals vanilla stevia.
- Shake mixture together, then allow to sit for a minute. Shake again and continue to repeat this process a few more times before placing in the fridge to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid. I personally leave mine to sit overnight, however, 30 – 60 minutes is fine, too.
- Right before you’re ready to serve, prepare the key lime pie topping by pureeing the avocado and lime together with an immersion blender in a small bowl. Sweeten with stevia to taste and blend together again until smooth.
- To prepare your chia pudding bowl, pour the chia pudding in your serving bowl, then top with the key lime topping. Finally, crush a few Simple Mills sea salt almond flour crackers on top.
