Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding
Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding is healthy way to start your day with a breakfast pudding made with a Spicy Chocolate Chai Organic Pu-erh Tea, coconut milk and chia seeds.
- 2 cup Coconut milk
in a carton – (we used So Delicious unsweetened brand or use any dairy alternative you like such as almond milk, soya milk or even real coconut milk in a can (however note that this is richer than the drinkable coconut milk, creamier)
- 4 sachets Spicy Chocolate Chai Organic Pu-erh Tea
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 6 teaspoon Maple syrup (or sweetener of choice) – adjust for your level of sweetness.
- ½ cup Chia seeds
- Garnishes as desired-(coconut whipped cream, sprinkle of Dutch unsweetened cocoa powder, toasted unsweetened coconut flakes, fruit, yogurt, cocoa nips or whatever your little heart desires.) optional
In a small saucepan heat coconut milk, vanilla and maple syrup for 3 minutes over medium high heat just until gently scalded. Do not boil and be careful to not let it boil over!
Remove the heated coconut or dairy-free milk mixture from the heat and place in the spicy chocolate chair organic pu-her tea bags with the paper hanging over the edges and let steep for 10 minutes and then cool slightly. Add the chia seeds and stir well. Place your Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding in sealable containers and place in the refrigerator overnight when cool to the touch.
Garnish as desired with coconut whipping cream, unsweetened cocoa powder and toasted unsweetened coconut flakes or whatever your little heart desires. You may even like to drizzle a little maple syrup or honey (if you are not vegan) on top just before serving. Enjoy!
These can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Do not freeze.
You can top your Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding with anything your heart desires but we whipped up Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream , a little cocoa powder and toasted unsweetened coconut for a little crunch. Cocoa nips, fresh fruit and even a little coconut yogurt would be super delicious as toppings.
