Easy Recipe for Sweet Tropical Green Chia Fruit Cups

This Tropical Green Chia Fruit Cup recipe is out of this world delicious. Made with a generous helping of pineapple, mango, coconut milk, spinach, and chia, this is the perfect way to start your mornings.


This windy weather has got me dreaming about the tropics. Oh, what I wouldn’t do to be on a beach right now, the cool breeze blowing through my hair, while I enjoy a freshly prepared concoction of tropical goodness right inside of a coconut shell.

That sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

While you might not be able to get to those tropical islands, you could bring the goodness to you – in a cup. These Tropical Green Chia Fruit Cups are so delicious! It’s like taking a bite out of a tropical island, minus the sand.

It’s one of my favorite ways to start the day. Why?

  • It’s sweet but healthy. I love a good sweet breakfast, but those sweet spreads tend to be a bit on the unhealthy side. This chia fruit cup is sweetened with a hint of honey and has loads of nutrients from spinach, pineapple, mango, coconut milk, and chia seeds.
  • It’s so easy to prepare! Whether you’re using fresh or frozen fruit, all there is to this is mixing the chia seeds with honey and coconut milk and adding in the rest of your ingredients. Leave overnight, and voila! The ultimate breakfast!
  • It’s a breeze to travel with! Sometimes I’m rushing out of the door. Having a cup (or jar) of this in the fridge really frees up my time! I can easily eat it wherever!
