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
enough water to blend

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.
