“Summer” in San Francisco is a tricky thing. We’ve been dying for Karl the Fog to disappear so we can enjoy the season’s finest – warm weather, tropical flavors and treats on treats on treats. But this recipe stopped us in our summer-seeking tracks! The coconut chia pudding topped with passion fruit granita sounds like the ultimate mid-afternoon indulgence or after dinner dessert. Refreshing, tangy and healthy as far as sweets go, we’re guaranteed to be chilling out with this bowl of goodness in hand all summer long – just as soon as the sun decides to show up!
Coconut Chia Pudding + Orange Passion Fruit Granita
For the pudding
– 1 medium young coconut
– 1 cup coconut cream (from a can)
– 1/3 cup white chia seeds
– 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
– 1 tablespoon elderflower syrup
– 1/2 vanilla pod
– Juice of 1 lime
For the granita:

Pomegranate and mint to garnish.
Sounds amazing, right? Well, we won’t mention you can can substitute the almond extract for amaretto. Wait, we just did! You’d be silly not to head over to Artful Desperado for the full recipe!
