How lucky are we that the fabulous Cat Carsten from Le Famished Cat ,

created this amazing twist on a firm South African favourite pudding – The Milk Tart, with the ever increasing in popularity Chia Pudding ūüôā and to say the outcome is magnificent is an understatement.

Milk Tart Chia Pudding

Today’s recipe is for my ultimate breakfast dessert hybrid Milk Tart Chia Pudding.
 Prep Time: 15 minutes
 Cook Time: 6 hours



  • Mix chia seeds. spices, milk, vanilla and 2tbsp of maple in a bowl
  • Let sit for 2 minutes until it begins to gel, and then give it a good mix again with a fork or a whisk.
  • Pour into 4 x small ramekins.
  • Pour remaining maple into the chia and it should sink to the bottom of your ramekin / small jar.
  • Set in the fridge overnight
  • In the morning, top with coconut cream or double cream, a drizzle of maple, dusting of cinnamon and cinnamon stick

Pro Tip –

  • Whisk all the ingredients together well to avoid the chia seeds sticking/clumping together.
  • Make your own nut milk – Cat suggest a macadamia nut milk for extra decadence. purchase a plant milk bag here
  • If the consistency is too thick then add some more milk before serving.
