Pineapple and Coconut Cream Chia Seed Pudding

Call me crazy, but I love chia seed pudding.  I know a lot of people don’t.  Usually it’s a texture thing.  If you like tapioca pudding, chances are you will like chia seed pudding, but it’s not a guarantee because it’s different.  Like, really different.  Even after it’s sat overnight the seeds still have a tiny bit of a “crunch” to them and the seeds get stuck in your teeth and bug you, which is what bothers me the most, but something as delicious and easy as this pudding is worth it Pineapple and Coconut Cream Chia Seed Pudding

I usually make a chocolate chia seed pudding, which is so delicious with almost any fresh fruit or even just by itself.  I think it was the fresh pineapple that convinced me to try a coconut version and trust me, it’s amazing.  This pudding is pretty rich, which is good with fresh fruit but if you want to make it a little lighter or just want to enjoy it on it’s own, you can try subbing coconut milk from a carton in place of the can of coconut milk, which should be about 1 1/2 cups.
