Things I’ve learned about having a broken wrist:

I can use a can opener by using it to punch 50 holes along the rim of its lid.

My fingers on my cast hand really smell (TMI? I swear I’m not unhygienic… I think the cast material gives them a weird odour).

Sports bras are a (one handed) girl’s best friend.

My armpit makes an awesome grip in lieu of my left hand.

A girls shopping day with your mom sucks when you struggle to try anything on.

Meals and snacks that only require one hand are my go to right now.

Enter this strawberry coconut chia pudding. Is it just me or is pudding the ultimate I’m-sick/injured/sad-and-I-feel-sorry-for-myself food? It reminds me of that scene in The Devil Wears Prada when Emily Blunt is in the hospital and ranting while shoveling chocolate pudding in her face.

I’ve done chocolate chia pudding before, but I wanted to go a more fruity┬ároute with this strawberry coconut chia pudding, Made with creamy coconut milk and fresh strawberries, it’s a luscious treat that tastes just like summer! It’s also nut free and gluten free, and easily made vegan with a few swaps. And lucky for me, it’s easy to whip up too… once I’ve gotten through punching 50 holes on the rim of the coconut milk can, that is.

    Ah that must be so frustrating- wishing you lots of healing vibes and helpful hands (from other people)

  2. You can’t eat chia pudding, you eat CARBS.

    Hope the mend is going well- This looks glorious- I should send you my failed chia attempt. Fail whale.

    i’ve said it before but you really should be a comedian – or have a cooking show that will engage the viewers since you are naturally witty (and have great recipes).
    I shared this with my mom as she recently asked me what she could do with chia seeds beyond adding them to her hot oatmeal. Obviously I suggest (and she tried) a
    few different pudding and overnight oat recipes, but she said yours is her favourite!!

    I shouldn’t laugh though. Your poor arm. It’s admirable to see you persevering through the pain? and inconvenience! You’re very resourceful. Maybe you can write a guidebook
    for those with different moving around in their kitchen!

      Aww, glad your mom enjoyed the pudding! :) Has she tried making chia jam yet? That’s another fun use for chia seeds!

  4. I am so ready for strawberry season. It’ll be soon now.

    Life with a broken wrist is no fun. You can’t even double fist it right now. :(

      I’m so bad at replying to comments on here that it’s already strawberry season woooo! Hope you’re enjoying some juicy ones – strawberries that is. ;)

  5. I hope your wrist feels better soon! I’ve never tried chia pudding before, but it’s been on my list of foods that I’m curious about and want to try for a while.

  7. This is a perfect recipe for strawberry season – which is so close I can almost smell it! Happy to hear your doing better now :)

      Yesss! Strawberry season is here now! Although to be honest, my favourite berries are raspberries and blueberries so I’m still holding out for those ones!
