  • 1 3/4 Cups Boiling Water
  • 2 Tblsp Cardamom Tea
  • 1 3/4 Cups Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 - 3 Tblsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Cup Chia Seeds


  • 2 Cups Mango
  • 1 Tblsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tblsp Water
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cardamom Tea



  1. To make the pudding, start by boiling the water. Once it boils pour into a container and steep the tea until it is quite strong; approximately 7 - 10 minutes. Sweeten the tea to your taste. Cool.
  2. Once it's cooled, whisk together the rest of the pudding ingredients and refrigerate for 2 hours.


  1. For the compote, put the mango, maple syrup and water into a saucepan. Cook until it is all soft and mushy, which is around 10 minutes. Remove from heat and then blend until there are no chunks. With a mortar and pestle, crush the tea. Return  the puree to heat and add the tea; cook for 1 - 2 minutes. Cool.
  2. Layer the compote and then the chia pudding in your bowl or glass. Repeat until it is full.
