Raw Coconut Chia Pudding
I had some frozen young coconut to use up and surprisigly couldn't really find a simple raw vegan pudding recipe for it. So I took ideas from all over and decided to simply blend the two together. The result was creamy and rich- and perfect when topped with mango. I could actually see this being a birthday/celebration dessert.
If you want the pudding to be sweet itself, then add a medjool date when blending. You could also add a vanilla bean, but the specs wouldn't be noticed b/c of the chia seed specs.
I used frozen young coconut meat (see photo). Thaw it, then drain off the liquid.
Blend until smooth 1 C young coconut meat 1 TB chia seeds

Pour into pretty single serving cups/teacups. It will start to set up quickly.
When ready to serve, top with chopped mango, berries or a fruity sauce.
