Recipe for Coconut Chia Pudding With Caramelised Pineapple by Anisa Sabet for The Macadames. 

I really do have a cookbook addiction. I actually buy on average one a week, my latest addition is the Women’s Weekly Real Food Cookbook. It’s shot by my FAVOURITE person i’ve had the pleasure of crossing paths with, Luisa Brimble. She’s such a lovely soul who is so generous with her praise and knowledge.

The book is packed with delicious and accessible recipes that I have just started to make my way through and the beautiful photos just make it so enjoyable to flick through.

One of the recipes that caught my eye was a chia pudding with macerated pineapple which I decided to adapt and shoot for my blog. I caramelised fresh pineapple for that lovely sweet and sticky flavour and added candied almonds on top for an extra crunch. I hope you enjoy the recipe and if you’re looking for another addition to your cookbook collection, I highly suggest the Women’s Weekly Real Food Cookbook.

2. To make the caramelised pineapple: melt a bit of coconut oil (or butter) in the fry pan, add the pineapples slices and cook until browned, then flip and brown on the other side. Once browned, remove from the pan and set aside to cool.

3. To assemble the puddings: divide the coconut chia mixture among your jars, top with caramelised coconut. When ready to eat, top with coconut cream and toasted nuts.
