Cardamom Chia Pudding
Chia seed pudding is incredibly easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. This sweet treat is not only delicious, but the seeds are highly nutritious! Chia seeds soak up many times their weight in liquid, so you'll get a smooth, creamy consistency that's just like tapioca pudding.
Although this recipe takes only minutes to prepare, it needs to "set" for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator - so plan ahead. Before serving, if you wish, top it off with raisins, nuts, sliced seasonal fruit or fruit compote.
1/3 cup organic chia seeds
one 13.5 oz can of organic coconut milk
13.5 oz of water
1 to 2 Tbsp organic cardamom powder (start with one, add more if desired)
raw honey to taste
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the water and coconut milk until it has an even consistency. Add the chia seeds and mix well. Let stand for one hour in the fridge, then stir again, breaking up any clusters of chia seeds if necessary. Store for a couple more hours, or overnight, in the fridge before serving. Add the cardamom powder and honey to taste. Mix well. Will keep in the fridge for several days.
