Happy Monday guys! Plum season is here in Austria, so what would be better than actually using them for a recipe? I’ve had several ideas, but a Cardamom Chia Pudding with Plum Sauce kind of got stuck in my head. You might already know my love for chia pudding after posting this Lemon Chia Pudding, or the Spring Rhubarb Chia Pudding version, so this shouldn’t be too much of a surprise!
Chia pudding is super simple to make and a perfect breakfast or dessert. Just let the seeds soak over night and you have a healthy, fiber filled pudding. We currently have tons of plums in the house, and believe me when I tell you that cardamom chia pudding and a warm plum sauce are a perfect match. It’s also delicious if you let the sauce cool down, so you can prepare it in little jars, layer it up and store in the fridge for dessert. The amounts in the recipe are for 1 serving, but simply multiply it by how many people you want to make it for. The serving is a breakfast size, so if you have a substantial meal before it, this single serving chia pudding might actually be enough for two as a dessert. Without making you wait any longer, let’s jump right to the recipe!
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- ½ tsp cardamom
- ½ light coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk that you enjoy)
- 3 plums*
- maple syrup to taste
- 1 squeeze lemon
- The night before (or at least an hour before serving), mix chia seeds, cardamom and milk. Stir very well every 5 minutes for the first 15 minutes, then let it gel up in the fridge.
- Cut the plums in half, take the stone out and put them on the stove in a little pot.
- Add a splash of water and let them start cooking.
- With a fork, help them break down, add a squeeze of lemon to prevent discoloration and add maple syrup to taste.
- Layer the plum sauce and chia pudding in a small glass and enjoy!
