Chia Pudding for Breakfast

Came across this recipe somewhere, can’t remember. Sounds interesting.

for 3

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • fresh cherries or berries for garnish
  • a small handful of toasted nuts – almonds, crushed pistachios, for garnish

Combine chia seeds, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract in a container that can be sealed – like a mason jar.

Stir well, refrigerate overnight.

Top pudding with berries and nuts before serving, chilled.
