Chia Seed Pudding

I just love this. Feels like its naughty, whilst actually being reasonably good for you. It's a little trickier, but, if it's just for me I half the ingredients.

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.
