Coffee Chia Seed Pudding

I hate coffee. However, I happen to have a slight addiction to caffeine. This leaves me guzzling tea and the occasional not-so-good-for-you energy drink. I've tried so hard to like coffee, but it's just not for me. 

This breakfast idea came to me after trying a smoothie at a local shop that had coffee in it. Just the little bit of caffeine boost was an awesome addition to my breakfast, and I didn't have to choke down a cup of coffee. 

This is a take on overnight oats, but I actually didn't add any oats into the mixture. Instead, this breakfast is filled with chia seeds and shredded coconut. 

A quick, easy breakfast that you can prepare the night before and it gives you a little caffeine boost? This is a great way to get back on the right track after snacking on Super Bowl food on Sunday :)

Enjoy! Recipe is below the photos.
