Ambrosia is one of our favorite breakfast treats when there's lots of fresh fruit--especially during strawberry season. You can variate the fruit--you aren't stuck with pineapple, grapes and strawberries. I've used bananas, oranges, blueberries, canned fruit, frozen fruit, and any variety that you enjoy! Just keep in mind color variety and make sure the flavors blend well. Choose two or three kinds of fruit and have fun! The texture is like a tapioca pudding because all the chia seeds swell up into little balls. Try it! You're in for a real treat! :)


4 T
chia seeds
1 t
1⁄4 c
frozen pineapple juice concentrate (or any other sweetener)
15 oz
coconut milk
1 can
pineapple chunks (OR other fresh, frozen, or canned fruit of choice)
2 c
seedless grapes (sliced in half)
4 c
strawberries (choose one--strawberries, apples, oranges, blueberries, peaches, pomegranates, cranberries, bananas, etc)


MIX the coconut milk, pineapple juice concentrate, and vanilla.

ADD the chia seeds and mix well with a fork or a wire whisk.

WAIT 5 minutes and mix again.

REPEAT this a few times until all the chia seeds are well mixed in forming a suspension without any lumps.

REFRIGERATE for 2-4 hours, or overnight.

CUT the fruit in bite size chunks.

MIX the fruit with the coconut-chia sauce.

SERVE it cold in a nice glass dish. You can top it with fresh strawberries for more color. Makes a nice holiday dish for breakfast, supper, or dessert.
