Believe it or not, this was my first time eating pomegranate seeds. When I first tried them, I didn’t like them by themselves, but I loved them combined with this pudding.

This coconut chia pudding is so delicious, especially topped with dark chocolate chunks, coconut shreds and pomegranate seeds. I made myself a little bowl to snack on for a healthy dessert, and assembled the rest into several little mason jars to bring to work for breakfast that week.

I ate all the mason jars in one sitting.

I’m not allowed to make this ahead of time anymore.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic breakfast recipe if you’re meal prepping for the week. As long as you have enough willpower for it to remain in the fridge that long.

But, if you’re like me… you may want to make it that morning instead. 🙂

I also used Trader Joe’s coconut beverage for this instead of full-fat canned coconut milk. It’s still dairy-free but contains less calories.
