  1. Open the can of coconut milk; remove the coconut cream top from the can and add it to a small bowl. Pour 3/4 cup of the liquid milk into a different large bowl, this will be used to make the pudding. Reserve the remaining liquid in the can, and transfer to the fridge with the bowl of coconut cream (separately). These will be used to make the coconut whipped cream topping.
  2. In the same large bowl with the 3/4 cup of coconut milk, combine the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla extract, maple syrup and chia seeds. Mix with a spatula to ensure everything is well combined.
  3. Transfer pudding mixture to 2 medium sized mason jars, cover and add to the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
  4. When you are ready to serve the pudding, prepare the coconut whipped cream. Remove reserved can of coconut milk and bowl of coconut cream from the fridge.
  5. In a medium bowl, add coconut cream and using a large whisk or fork, thoroughly whisk cream to add air. In batches, add a small amount of the reserved can of coconut milk to the coconut cream to create a whipped coconut cream. You are looking to create a rich and frothy texture. Depending on your brand of coconut milk, you might need all of the reserve liquid or just a few splashes to create the frothy coconut whipped cream topping.
  6. Optional: You can add a little splash of maple syrup if you want to sweeten the coconut whipped cream, however I find the pudding itself sweet enough.
  7. Serve the pudding with two heaping spoonfuls of coconut whipped cream, a drizzle of maple syrup, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a handful chopped pecans.
  8. Enjoy!
