Recipe • Coconut Chia Seed Pudding with Berry Compote
Unlike most saturated fat, coconut fat is MCT (Medium Chain Fatty Acid) which can be broken down by the body more easily. Coconut is also one of the richest food sources of lauric acid which has anti-viral and anti-bacterial functions.
Coconut can be a part of healthy diet, when consumed in moderation. (Source)

150g frozen Strawberries
30ml Orange Juice
1TBS Caster Sugar
Mint leaves (to garnish)
•Warm coconut milk in a pot, over medium heat and stir constantly. Leave to cool slightly.
•Put chia seeds and honey into a deep container. Pour in coconut milk. Stir to mix well, cover and leave in fridge to thicken, remove from fridge and stir again after 2hrs. Put into fridge for another 2hrs or more.
•Use a small pot, add in strawberries and orange juice. Cook over low heat, stir constantly. Mash the berries occasionally and add in sugar. Boil till mixture bubbles and juice reduces. Takes about 15mins. (Note 2)
•Remove chia seed pudding from fridge, scoop into pudding jars/cups. Top with berry compote and garnish with mint leaves.
(1) I used Ayam brand UHT Coconut milk for this recipe.
(2) This amount of berry compote is sufficient for the pudding. Extra compote (if any) can be kept in clean glass jar (preferably sterilized), cover and leave to cool before storing in fridge.
