Coconut and chia rice pudding recipe

This coconut and chia rice pudding will warm you through spring breakfasts, desserts and whenever you need a little comfort in a bowl. I have always been a huge rice pudding fan. I don’t know if it’s an Irish thing or what, but it is on my top-five-comfort-foods list.

I’ve added coconut and a heap of chia to a basic creamy rice pudding recipe. The result? AWESOME!

You could also totally make this coconut and chia rice pudding in a slow cooker or a Thermomix (I presume, don’t have one of those just yet). The recipe makes quite a bit, so consider halving it if you’re not feeding a small army.

There’s a bit of fiddling around with oven temperatures throughout the cooking process, but it’s completely worth it. Make this dish when you have a little time and need a little warming by the oven. Actually, make it one night and leave it ready in the fridge for the morning.


Also good for breakfast: Vegetable fritters for breakfast
