Pineapple Acai Bowl Chia Pudding

Recently I posted a recipe for a Coconut Yogurt Chia Pudding and I talked a bit about why I love Chia Seeds so much, and how getting them into recipes in creative ways is really important for me. They are my primary source for Omega-3s, a fatty acid that is vital for brain function, and I eat them pretty much every day. At first I mostly rocked them in traditional, fruity chia puddings. Then I got a bit bored of that. So I’ve been mixing it up now. I like to put them in my green smoothies, and have started getting the ground meal into crusts and crackers and such. Today I’m going to share a recipe for an Acai Bowl Chia Pudding, which is same same but different as most fruity Chia Puddings. (If you haven’t been to Thailand you probably won’t get that).

It’s similar (same same) because it’s basically a really fruity chia pudding, but it’s different in that the frozen Acai Bowl aspect of it makes it uber refreshing, especially in the tropical heat of Bali.

Acai has a decadent, dark, rich berry flavor. I find that it mixes magically with anything tart or sour, particularly berries and pineapple. And I talk about this pretty often – having a significant amount of fats in a recipe allows the flavor to deepen and last longer. The young coconut meat and the chia seeds play this role in this dish. I commonly use young coconut meat as a base for an Acai Bowl for this reason. And because it’s delicious!

Last but not least, I added a superfood boost with some Red Maca Powder, which is my favorite of all the Maca Powders. It has an almost baked, savory flavor. I use it in a lot of dehydrated recipes, including my pizza crust.
