Coconut Almond Chia Seed Pudding

Talk about creamy, light, and refreshing! Especially when you add fresh fruit!

I love this flavor because it’s not overly sweet but it’s satisfying enough when you want to indulge in something sweet.

Especially if you’re trying to limit your intake on the super sugary stuff.

The coconut milk is what provides that creamy texture while the almond extract supplies the flavor.

Hope you enjoy it!

Truth be told I had never thought of adding fruit or veggies to my water, other then lemon.

And the only reason I know of lemon in water is probably because when you’re at a restaurant they ask if you would like lemon in your water (the answer is always yes btw).

Little did I know that adding fruit or veggies to your water adds vitamins and minerals to it.

As if ice cold water couldn’t be more refreshing when you’re super thirsty, right! The fruit in the water definitely takes it up a notch.

I was first introduced to fruit infused water or, what some would call ‘spa water’ was actually when I worked in a spa as a front desk receptionist.

You would walk into this gorgeous spa and a giant, beautiful glass, self serve pitcher caught your eye. Ice water with the fruit of the day.

It was super appealing. I actually wanted to drink water! There was just a hint of flavor but enough to tell the difference.

Ever since then I’ve been hooked! This is a terrific way to stay refreshed and hydrated!

‘Spa Water’ is perfect for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, a brunch, etc.

A gorgeous way to serve water to your guests and keep them hydrated.
