Ingredients for 4 portions
2 cups coconut milk (homemade or natural)
1/2 cup Chia Seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup (or less) maple syrup (or substitute a different sweetener) - half is 2 tablespoons
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
Topping ideas - pomegranate is my current favourite, blueberry's, granola, raspberry's, melon
Flavouring ideas - almond butter, cacao, fruit puree e.g. apple, banana
Really simple - put everything in a lidded container and give it a shake and leave overnight, or at least 5 hours or so. If you have chance to stir it a couple of times early on that can help it evenly soak up the coconut milk - its fine either way.
I like the texture as it is, however, to make it more like an American style 'pudding' blend it for a couple of minutes. Be warned it will look an oddish grey colour if you don't have a coloured fruit or other ingredient in it. Where cacao has been added the blended version is especially good.
This keeps for 2-3 days in the fridge.
