What is dragon fruit chia pudding?
Dragon fruit chia pudding is a super delicious, creamy and no-cook kind of breakfast or dessert recipe. The pudding is made with fresh dragon fruit or pitaya fruit and coconut milk. To get the pudding-like consistency, you will need to add chia seeds to the flavored and sweetened liquids and let it sit for 1-3 hours or overnight.
You will only need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make this yummy grab & go breakfast.
Dragon Fruit: I have used pink pitaya or dragon fruit to get a beautiful color. You can also use white dragon fruit but the pink one is more sweeter.
Coconut Milk: You can use full fat or low fat coconut milk here.
Chia Seeds: Chia seeds will act as a thickening agent and they are full of nutrients.
Sugar: Replace sugar with any of your favorite sweetener.
Vanilla: A little bit of vanilla adds a great flavor to the pudding.
Is it vegan?
Yes it is a vegan dish.
You can easily store this chia pudding for a couple of days and it’s a perfect make-ahead breakfast recipe.
It is best when you serve it cold as a breakfast. You can top it with fresh fruits and nuts. You can also serve it as a snack or a dessert.
Always follow the right measurements or ration to get the right consistency every time.
Instead of grinding chia seeds with dragon fruit and coconut milk, you can stir the whole chia seeds at the end just before refrigerating the chia pudding to set.
If you want to adjust the consistency, add a little more chia seeds or milk to the pudding and let it sit for some more time.
