  • Author: Funky Asian Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: breakfast
  • Cuisine: Filipino

Ingredients

Scale
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut cream or milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • ½ cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup strawberries 
  • 1 cup blueberries 
  • 1 cup nate de coco (coconut jelly)*
  • 8 tablespoons fruity pebbles or other crunchy cereal

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl or tall mixing glass, mix together the chia seeds, water, and coconut milk. The chia seeds are very light so you need to mix well. After a couple of minutes, mix again to make sure all of the chia is soaking in the coconut milk and there are no pockets of dry grains.
  2. Let the chia seeds continue absorbing the liquid and thickening, about 15 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, prep the fruit:
  4. Wash the strawberries. Next cut off the stems of the strawberries and cut into quarters. Set aside.
  5. Wash the blueberries and set aside.
  6. Use 4 clear wine glasses or small clear bowls for your puddings. At the bottom of each cup put 2 tablespoons each of the nate de coco, chopped strawberries, and blueberries. 
  7. Evenly pour the chia pudding on top of the fruit in the four glasses. Next top each pudding with 2 tablespoons of nate de coco, strawberries, and blueberries.
  8. Cover the chia pudding with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  9. When ready to serve, pour a couple of tablespoons of condensed milk on top of the pudding and top with the fruity pebbles. 
  10. Then mix-mix (halo halo) and enjoy.

Notes

*Nato de coco, little cubes of coconut jelly, can be found in Asian markets. You can also use any of the flavored ones used for bubble tea.

*This pudding chills up firm. If you prefer a looser, softer pudding, increase the water to 1 cup.
