Carob Chai Pudding (AIP, Paleo)
Recipe type: Treat
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • ¼ c chopped dates (about 4 or 5 dates)
  • ½ c boiling water
  • 1 400 mL can of coconut milk (free of BPA and additives like guar gum)
  • 1 tbsp gelatin
  • ¼ c cold water
  • ¼ c carob powder
  • 1-2 tsp chai spice mix (1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp cloves, ½ tsp cardamom*)
  • *Be careful with cardamom, which is fruit-based spice and therefore a proceed-with-caution AIP spice. Although for some cardamom may be successfully reintroduced in the early stages of reintroduction, it's best not to eat it while on the strict, elimination phase of AIP.)
  1. Soak the chopped dates in a small bowl full of the boiled water. Set aside.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin over the ¼ c of cold water and let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat the coconut milk in a medium sauce pan. Do not boil. Stir gelatin mixture into coconut milk and dissolve completely.
  4. Add chopped dates along with the water to a blender and process. Add coconut milk, carob power, and 2 tsp of chai mix. Blend completely.
  5. Pour into four individual serving dishes and chill until set. Top with whipped coconut cream and a pinch of the remaining chai mix.
