If you like piña coladas and getting caught eating your daily chia seeds, then you'll love piña colada chia seed pudding! Whether you add coconut granola and make it breakfast or a little rum and make it a party, you can't go wrong!

Piña coladas are not known for their health benefits, but add in some chia seeds and you have one of the tastiest, healthy treats around! For a breakfast piña colada pudding, try topping it with coconut granola instead of a pineapple wedge. If you're looking for a little indulgence, rum can be added after the chia seeds have soaked overnight.

  2. Add the coconut milk, pineapple and banana to a food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into a bowl or large Mason jar. Add chia seeds.
