Pumpkin Spice Sweet Potato & Coconut Chia Pudding

Makes 4 small servings or 2 huge like I’m showing hihi, about 1.5 h

  • 4 small sweet potatoes (or like 2 big ect)
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin spice
  • 2 tablespoons of filtered water, more if needed
  • 2 cups (5 dl) full-fat coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoon shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of sweetner (I don’t use it, but I like it raw, so it’s up to you)

Make it and shake it like this:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the sweet potatoes for 35-40 minutes, or until soft inside. Set aside and let cool. Make chia seed pudding below while waiting for potatoes to cool.
  • When making the chia seed pudding, choose a container with a tight-fitting lid, as you will want to shake it vigorously before refrigerating.
  • Add the coconut milk, chia seeds, vanilla extract and cinnamon to your container and attach the lid.
  • Shake the container vigorously for 60 seconds. This will ensure all of the chia seeds are coated with liquid and there will be no clumps in your pudding.
  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour, and shake at least once in between.
  • Once the potatoes are cool, scoop the flesh of the sweet potato into a food processor and discard the skins.
  • Add the pumpkin spice and water to the food processor. Blend for several minutes until the mixture is completely smooth. Add more water if needed.
  • Layer the chia seed pudding with the sweet potato mixture into four containers.
  • Top with shredded coconut. Enjoy!
