Pretty Papaya Pudding
Oh, what a treat to find a perfectly ripe papaya at the market! Naturally sweet, these make a delightful dessert without adding sugar! This no-cook version is a cinch. It will be soft set and ready to eat in 5 minutes.
Simple Pudding Ingredients
1 whole papaya, peeled and seeded
1″ fresh ginger root, finely grated
1 c. full-fat coconut milk
3 Tb. chia seed
Extravagant Pudding Ingredients
All ingredients above
1 c. fresh or frozen berries
1/8 tsp. cardamom
1 tsp. lime juice
Blend fruit, grated ginger and coconut milk until smooth. Mix in chia seed until evenly distributed. Pour into dessert dishes and serve immediately, or for a thicker set, refrigerate an hour or more.
For the extravagant topping, place berries in a saucepan and add water until they are 2/3 covered. Bring to a simmer, stirring and mashing until you have a jam-like consistency. Remove from heat and stir in cardamom and lime. Cool and spoon over pudding.
