COCONUT YOGURT: MEREDITH BAIRD, AUTHOR OF COCONUT KITCHEN

“There is something so satisfying about yogurt for breakfast. Not only is the morning probiotic boost a healthy way to start the day, but there is also a familiar coziness about eating yogurt.

Making a base recipe of yogurt on a Sunday evening is a great way to set a healthy tone for the rest of the week.”

•	1/2 cup coconut yogurt
•	1 tablespoon raw honey or coconut nectar (optional)

Skip the bagel and go for the bowl.”

CHIA SEED & COCONUT PUDDING RECIPE: KAEGAN WELCH, DIRECTOR OF FOOD AND BEVERAGE AT LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN

“Packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition. Because they’re able to absorb up to 10 times their weight in liquid, they keep you feeling satiated and energized all morning. The addition of creamy coconut milk and raspberry compote makes this a 100% vegan and guilt-free breakfast that’s still indulgent.”
•	5 tbsp chia seeds
•	1 3/4 cup canned coconut milk
•	10 passion fruit, halved, pulp and seeds removed
•	4 tbsp agave syrup
In a bowl, mix the chia seeds with the coconut milk for 2 minutes using a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture into 4 round dessert or pudding molds or ramekins (about 4" in diameter) or a selection of molds of smaller sizes. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until completely set. To make the passion fruit sauce, place the passion fruit in a small saucepan with the agave syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then immediately reduce the heat to very low and cook gently for about 5 minutes or until the sauce coats the back of the spoon. Turn out the chia and coconut puddings onto 4 serving plates. Drizzle with the passion fruit sauce and serve with your choice of seasonal soft fruits. Serves 4.
