This recipes requires a minimum 30 minutes chill time.
Heat a small frying pan over medium heat. Drizzle in vegetable oil and allow to warm. Add carrots and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Stir constantly until the carrots have slightly softened. Turn off heat and set aside.
In a mason jar combine non-dairy milk, chia seeds, cooked carrots, the remaining maple syrup, spices and vanilla extract. Stir until combined.
Place the chia pudding in the fridge to thicken for a minimum of 30 minutes (an hour or overnight is recommended). Shake the mason 15 minutes after placing in the fridge to ensure the chia seeds don’t settle to the bottom.
Once thickened, serve with your favourite toppings and enjoy.
