Overnight Breakfast Puddin'
This is such a simple-but-great, make-ahead breakfast. First of all, it's in a Mason Jar. Second of all, it's STILL good even if it's not in a Mason Jar. Side-note: Mason Jars come with measuring lines on the side- how handy! To make the puddin', all you do is:
Mix 3/4 cup coconut milk with 3-4 tablespoons of chia seeds. Stir it, seal it, and stick it in the fridge while you sleep. Wake up and... BREAKFAST!
I have put 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of rolled oats in the same over night recipe, and it was tasty that was as well.
I mixed Trader Joe's coconut and dried cranberries into the "puddin'" in the morning, and it was fabulous. Although it's made with coconut milk, there is not an overwhelming coconut flavor. The texture of the pieces of coconut and the puddin' go very well together.
I have also tried it with honey, dried fruit, and pecans or almonds.
As you can see in the picture above, this makes for a perfect early morning breakfast to look forward to when you have to wake up extra early- it's still dark outside!
