2tsprice malt syrupor other sweetener of choice - OPTIONAL
Steam pumpkin until soft (about 10 minutes depending how big it has been cut) and then allow to cool.
Place pumpkin, coconut milk, water, vanilla, ground spices and rice malt syrup (if using) in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Transfer mixture to a bowl or container, and stir through the chia seeds.
Cover and leave in the fridge to set overnight (or for a few hours at least). The chia seeds will swell up and absorb the liquid, so you will be left with a delicious pudding.
Serve with toppings of choice. To keep it low sugar, try toppings like full fat unsweetened natural yoghurt or coconut yoghurt, cacao nibs, nuts and/or seeds.
*If you want to make a more rich, creamy pudding you can use more coconut milk instead of a full cup of water e.g. do 3/4 coconut milk + 3/4 cup water, or you could add some other kind of milk instead of water, also e.g. almond milk.
