Chia Pudding

Makes about 20 ounces (or 6 small cups)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)

Suggested Additions

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • Cocoa powder

  • Fruits (banana, strawberries, blueberries)

  • Toasted almonds

  • Pecans

  • Coconut flakes

  • Cinnamon

Directions:

Whisk coconut milk together with honey (or maple syrup). When the honey is completely mixed in, stir in the chia seeds. If you want to add any spices, stir in 1/4 teaspoon of each now.

Pour into cups and let chill in the fridge til the chia seeds puff up and the pudding is firm (4-5 hours). Top with the fruit of your choice and serve.
