This creamy carob version tastes utterly decadent but can easily be made without any sweetener, it is also suitable for vegans, unless you add the honey, but that could simply be replaced with good old maple syrup.

Creamy Carob Chia Seed Pudding Ingredients - serves approx 12

  • 3/4 cup chia seeds
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 10g cacao butter
  • 3 tbsp carob powder
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional)

This pudding keeps in the fridge for several days, and this quantity is perfect for 2 days of breakfasts for my family of 6 - dividing the quantities by 3 would be a perfect amount for 1 or 2 people.

Instructions

  1. Put the chia seeds and carob powder into a bowl.
  2. Put the cacoa butter into a measuring cup and top up with hot water, leave to melt.
  3. Pour the coconut milk, melted cacao butter and water onto the chia seeds and whisk well.
  4. Taste and if you require a sweeter taste, add in the honey or maple syrup.
  5. Whisk well, checking that there aren't any big lumps of chia seeds.
  6. Pour into a jar and leave in the fridge overnight.
  7. The next morning, if the pudding is too thick and gelatinous for your liking, stir in some more coconut milk until you reach the desired consistency.
  8. Serve as it is, or add in some fresh or dried fruit, and maybe a handful of our chocolate granola.
