Festive Spiced Sweet Potato and Currant Chia Seed Pudding

  • Author: Denise Carrell

Description

A sweet and savory pudding that’s healthy and satisfying. Peppered with currants for texture and a hint of spice to please the warm spicy side of you!


Ingredients

2 cups coconut milk

1/2 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup yam puree

1/2 tsp sea or pink Himalayan salt

1 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning

1/4 cup currants


Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients, except currants, into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk until blended. 
  3. Alternatively, use a blender or high speed mixer.*
  4. Stir in the currants. Use more or less to adjust to your liking!
  5. Immediately divide pudding into jars or a container and place in the refrigerator for a few hours until set.

 


Notes

  • I find this to set up rather quickly. I refrigerate it because I prefer it chilled.
  • The coconut milk is much easier to stir if you use a room temperature can of milk.
  • If you get distracted like I do in the kitchen and you leave it sitting while you are doing 3 other things, it will set up in the mixing vessel. For more ease (and tidiness) in storage, pour it immediately into storage container. 
  • This recipe is very versatile.  Adding a scoop of grass-fed collagen (NOT gelatin, there is a difference), hemp hearts or extract flavor variations gives you extra nutrient density and flavor.
