When your oats needs a makeover, try this tropical-inspired recipe. It's full of delicious goodness from fresh, juicy fruit, toasted coconut, and chia seeds. Chia seeds are loaded with protein and fiber and can absorb up to nine times their weight in liquid. They develop a thick, viscous texture when soaked, somewhat like that of tapioca. If you don't have pineapple or kiwi, consider blueberries and chopped strawberries instead.
