Chia Sago in Coconut Milk


400ml tin of coconut milk (Kara brand is preferable for flavour)

600ml water (or 11⁄2 measures of your empty “Kara coconut milk” can of water)

4 tablespoons white sugar

6 tablespoons Chia seeds

1 large bowl (min. 1.5 litre capacity)

Banana(s) – chopped to garnish


Empty tin of coconut milk in large bowl, add water and sugar and stir until sugar dissolves.

Add chia seeds and stir them in so they are no longer floating. 

Check on the mixture and stir it regularly while the seeds absorb the liquid and swell. This ensures the chia swells while in suspension and makes for an even consistency, rather than having the seeds settle and swell at the bottom of the bowl.

Cover the bowl and place in fridge over night.

When ready to serve, ladle the liquid into serving bowls and top with chopped banana.  Best eaten chilled
