Now that Memorial Day has passed, can we say summer is officially here? Even though the weather was a bit grey this weekend, I am not complaining. Early summer came to Seattle and it’s been mostly warm and sunny for weeks now.

One treat I have been making a lot of is this Pina Colada Chia Pudding. It is based off of Faith and I’s Pina Colada Smoothie recipe from BLEND: Artisanal Smoothies For Food Lovers.

We make some variation of this smoothie a lot. Sometimes with greens in it, often as popsicles and now as chia seed pudding.

This comes together in minutes and just needs to set in the fridge. I like to top it with some unsweetened, shredded coconut and serve.

NOTES:

  • If you want to spike this, add 2 ounces of Malibu Rum or other Rum to the smoothie ingredients before blending.
  • Toasted coconut or fresh cherries also makes a great topping!
