Yield 4 servings

3 large carrots

1 1/2 tablespoons of ghee (can be substituted with coconut oil)

1 14-ounce can of full-fat coconut milk

2 teaspoons of ground cardamom, plus more for sprinkling on top

1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling on top

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon of liquid stevia (can be substituted with 1-2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup)

3 tablespoons of chia seeds

Raisins, to garnish

Coconut cream, to garnish


Grate the carrots in the food processor or with a box grater.

Heat the of ghee in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the carrots, and saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Afterwards, cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low, and cook until soft and beginning to brown, about 30 to 35 minutes more. Give it a shake or stir every 5 minutes or so to prevent burning.

Once the carrots are done, add them to a blender or food processor with the full-fat coconut milk, cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and liquid stevia. Blend until completely liquefied, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Pour the carrot and coconut mixture into a large container, and stir in the chia seeds. You can ground them if you want, but I like leaving them whole.

Put the pudding container in the fridge, and wait at least 4 hours (preferably overnight) before eating. Garnish with raisins, a little more cinnamon and/or cardamom, and a dollop of coconut cream, if you like.
