    These are visually delicious and healthy. Great for a high tea as well. You can find lavender at spice shops, but if you have trouble finding some, these pudding cups are still lovely and lemony without it.

    Tip

    You could make these delicious cups larger by using regular muffin cups. Try blueberries if you don’t have raspberries; they make a tasty substitute.

    Directions

    01

    For pudding, place can of coconut milk in fridge overnight or a few days ahead. This will separate the coconut cream from the water.

    02

    Remove coconut milk from fridge and scoop out hardened coconut cream. You can use the water for a smoothie or for drinking later. In medium-sized bowl, add cream, chia seeds, salt, coconut sugar, lemon juice, and lavender. Whisk together. Place in fridge for an hour or two until it has settled into a pudding-like texture.

    03

    For crust, in food processor, combine oats, salt, dates, coconut, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Once fully incorporated, remove mixture from processor and, using your fingers, spread approximately 1/2 to 1 Tbsp (7 to 15 mL) of oat mixture into oiled mini muffin tin. Press oats up sides like a crust. Repeat until mixture has been used up. Place in freezer or fridge until hardened.

    04

    Once hardened, carefully use knife to scoop out the oat cups. Fill cups with lemon lavender pudding. Top each cup with a raspberry. Return to fridge until ready to serve. Drizzle with a little maple syrup before serving, if you wish.
