Warm Milk Tart-flavoured Chia Seed Pud
Chia seeds are fantastic! They’re worth paying a bit extra for at health stores as they are healthy, surprisingly tasty, low carb and have a natural thickening quality that makes them the perfect ingredient for desserts.

1 tin (400 ml) coconut milk
1 tin (400 ml) coconut cream
2⁄3 C (160 ml) full cream milk
seeds from 1 vanilla pod
1 tsp (5 ml) ground cinnamon
1⁄3 C (80ml) xylitol granules
2⁄3 C (160 ml / 130 g) chia seeds
whipped cream, for serving
ground cinnamon, for garnish
Heat the coconut milk, coconut cream, milk, vanilla seeds, cinnamon and xylitol in a heavy-based saucepan over gentle heat. Stir continuously while heating. Remove from the heat as soon as it starts to boil. Stir in the chia seeds, cover with a lid and allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Serve each portion with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
TIP: The coconut cream and milk can be replaced with normal milk and cream if your diet allows it. Almond milk can also be used, but will result in a less creamy dessert.
