Cardamom Coconut Chia Pudding [Vegan]

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste






  • 2 cups coconut (or soy) milk
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (not instant oats, which will turn to mush when soaked!)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cardamom pods, gently crushed to expose seeds


  1. Mix all the ingredients together and give them a good stir. Refrigerate for at least an hour (up to overnight).
  2. Prior to serving, fish out the cardamom pods. Stir in fruit of choice (berries or chopped mango work nicely here), add a splash of coconut milk for a more liquid pudding, and serve toddlers, kids and adults. Purée for babies.
