Ingredients for Chia Pudding
- Chia seeds
- Almond milk

How to make Chia Pudding
- In a large glass jar whisk the almond milk, honey, and vanilla extract.
- Add the chia seeds to the jar and mix thoroughly.
- Cover the glass jar and place the chia pudding in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
- When ready to eat, remove the glass jar from the fridge, portion out the pudding and then top with granola, compote, fresh fruit, and/or additional sweetener.
Tip: Mixing thoroughly prevents the chia seeds from getting super clumpy. I made them once and only mixed the seeds half-heartedly; come the next morning it took a good minute or two of me mixing the pudding to get it into a nice even consistency.
The pudding still worked and tasted great. But to avoid any bumps in the process, mix the chia seeds into the liquid ingredients thoroughly, or until the seeds are evenly dispersed.
