I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Strawberry and Coconut Chia Pudding

This is my first experience with chia seeds.
Can you believe that this will turn into pudding?

1/2 cup chia seeds (no need to rinse)
2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp coconut or almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup shredded coconut
5 or 6 well chopped strawberries plus extra to garnish

Whisk together the milk, honey, extracts, coconut and strawberries. And then the chia seeds.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, to help prevent a skin forming, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
After 2 hours stir the pudding. If a skin has formed just break it up and stir together. Pour pudding into serving bowls, cover with plastic wrap again and refrigerate for 2 more hours.
And presto it's pudding!
I admit it, I shamelessly used my love for the Mighty Montreal Canadiens to draw your attention to this recipe : )
They pack a powerful punch just like chia seeds!
(Thanks for the apron ladies...you know who you are)
