If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious Christmas treat, give this gingerbread pudding with chia seeds a try. I’d happily eat this pudding year round, but it’s perfect for Christmas because of the warm gingerbread spices and the delightful texture (reminiscent of tapioca pudding) from the chia seeds. Also, if you happen to be entertaining guests with different dietary restrictions, this recipe will probably work well.

Sweetened only with date paste, this pudding is completely free of refined sugar. The date paste gives this pudding a rich caramely sweetness which complements the gingerbread spices perfectly. 

I opted to use almond milk as the base for this vegan pudding recipe, but feel free to substitute coconut milk (or any other milk of your choosing) if you prefer a nut free version.
