two pudding cups, coconut and cherry flavor

Coconut and Cherry Chia Pudding Cups

These glorious layered cups are perfect for breakfast or a healthy dessert. The cherries preserves are the ultimate standout and scream summer if you can get them fresh. You can use frozen cherries as well, but the cook time on the preserves will be slightly longer. Try your hand at layering and garnish with toasted coconut for a spectacular crunch!
