3-5 frozen (or fresh) strawberries (or any other fruit of choice, pineapple was also yummy)
1 can of full fat coconut milk. Look for a can with no more than coconut milk and maybe guar gum. If you can find with nothing but coconut milk, that is best.
1.5 tbs of chia seeds. I found these at the bulk bin at Whole Foods out here. They also have them at Down to Earth here in Kailua.
A jar with a lid (or tupperware or something you can shake)
Take about 1-1.5 tbs of chia seeds and grind them up. I used my coffee grinder and it worked great. You can put them in whole, it also works, but it doesn't get as pudding-y as I like. I forgot to take a picture of this.
Cut up strawberries or whatever fruit you're using into small pieces. I left mine kind of big, because I like to have a full fruit bite, but you might decide to make them smaller.
Close the lid and shake it up! Of course, you could also add chia seeds, fruit, and coconut milk to a blender and have a smoothie, but I like it chunky. Leave it to sit for 2 hours, either on the counter or in the fridge. If you put it in the fridge, it's best to let it warm up a bit before eating. This is a very pared down, very basic version of this recipe, some people choose to add other ingredients. You could add honey or stevia, you could add chocolate chips or other fruit. It is a really great base for lots of things. But if you love it like this, as I do, let it sit, warm up for a few and eat with spoon!
