Coconut & Almond Chia Pudding Recipe

I was recently asked by Ciao Gusto to prepare a recipe using one of their products.  So when I spotted the Valsoia Coconut & Almond Milk I just knew what I had to create – a chia pudding recipe! I am very familiar with the Ciao Gusto products such as pesto and olive oil – these are a staple in our household with a fussy toddler!  But I wasn’t aware that their product range was quite so diverse.

My recipe inspiration was derived from last Christmas when we escaped the expat life and went home to Australia for a few weeks.  An aunt made chia pudding for breakfast on Christmas Day and they were absolutely delicious.  So whilst this is my first attempt at showcasing a recipe on my blog, I hope you enjoy it and are inspired to try it yourself.

Benefits of Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are deemed a super food due to all the amazing health benefits they offer.  Originally from central america, they are packed with antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and protein.  They are easy to add to your diet – simply include them in smoothies, home-made bread or make a chia pudding!

Valsoia Coconut & Almond Milk

These days, it is not uncommon for people to steer clear of traditional dairy milk products.  Either due to health or dietary reasons.  Therefore, a great alternative to traditional milk is coconut or almond milk, like the products offered by Valsoia.  The Valsoia Coconut & Almond Milk contains calcium and vitamins, is naturally lactose free, Gluten free, and low in sugar and fat.  Plus, it is suitable for vegans.

I found the milk to be absolutely delicious and a great choice for the chia pudding recipe.  You can taste the tropical notes of coconut and nuttiness from the almonds.  It makes me sound like a wine connoisseur … but the flavors were really lovely and this will become a staple in our fridge.

  1. I have to say it looks incredibly healthy and delicious. I would never take the time to make something like this for myself though I wish I would now looking at your pictures. With twin babies I get so little time these days but I will definitely try to make an effort. I’ve also never tried coconut or almond milk so that interests me too! Lovely recipe idea! #KCACOLS
