"Rice" Pudding
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: French
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 can (400 ml) coconut (or almond) milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup chia seeds
  • Optional: Garnish with berries, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, or spices of your choosing (cinnamon, nutmeg)
  1. Whisk together milk of choice, vanilla, and maple syrup until well combined.
  2. Add chia seeds, stirring consistently until all thoroughly combined.
  3. Let sit for 1-2 hours so the seeds can expand in the liquid.
  4. If you prefer it cold, refrigerate the mixture. Note: this will significantly harden the pudding since the milk solidifies at colder temperatures.
  5. Garnish with desired toppings. Sprinkling with nutmeg or cinnamon adds a nice hint of spice. Toasted sliced almonds or raisins also work nicely on top.
