Coconut is extremely versatile. Each part of it can be used in different ways. Coconut meat is tasty and slightly sweet, and I enjoy it raw and dry too. I love and use coconut oil, milk, water, desiccated and shredded coconut, flakes, condensed coconut milk and coconut flour. The shell can be used as a small bowl for serving. Nothing is wasted.

Coconuts mostly provide fats, not carbohydrates. Most of the fat in coconut is in the form of medium chain triglycerides (MCT). This can help you lose excess body fat. The explanation is, your body metabolizes MCTs differently than other types of fats. MCT is absorbed directly from your small intestine and rapidly used for energy.

It is great source of minerals. Manganese is one of them. It is essential for bone health and the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and cholesterol. Coconut is especially high in manganese.

Coconut is also rich in copper and iron. They help form red blood cells. It contains good amount of selenium, an important antioxidant that protects your cells.

Chia seeds

Chia seeds are called as a superfood. Chia is an ancient Mayan word. It means strength. Chia seeds have a long history, they had already been an important food for the Aztecs and Mayans in The Preclassic Periode.

Chia seeds are one of the world’s best sources of several important nutrients. They’re loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. Chia seeds contain high amount of calcium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. And a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3, potassium, vitamin B1 and vitamin B2.

They have very high antioxidant content also. This is very important, because antioxidants protect cells from damage.

Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber, which your body does not digest. This fiber feeds good bacteria in the intestine. It is very important keeping the gut flora healthy. Chia seeds are able to absorb 10-12 times their weight due to their high soluble fiber content. They become like a gel and swollen. This can increase the fullness of the stomach and slow absorption of the food.

Chia seeds are high in protein. They contain higher amount of it than most of plants.

  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp coconut, shredded or desiccated
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp honey or more if you prefer sweeter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp konjac flour
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 4 pcs kiwi


  • Warm coconut milk to lukewarm.
  • Combine lukewarm coconut milk, chia seeds, desiccated coconut, konjac flour, honey, vanilla extract and salt. Set aside for 30 minutes. The seeds swell, the mixture begins to thicken. Stir several times during rest.
  • Meanwhile peel and slice 2 kiwis.
  • Put the other 2 kiwis into blender and blend for 1 minute. It is not necessary to add any sweetener, because kiwi is sweet enough. Its slightly sour taste harmonizes with sweet taste of the coconut chia cream perfectly.
  • Place kiwi slices on the wall of glass bowls. Pour the coconut pudding into the bowls very gently. Spoon kiwi cream to their top and crown with a slice of kiwi. Put the bowls into the fridge for 1 hour (or overnight) then serve. Enjoy!
