Prep time: 5 minutes
Rest time: 3 hours, preferably overnight
Yield: 4–6 servings
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup chia seeds, as desired
- 1 to 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup, to taste (optional)
- 3 cups unsweetened almond (or other) milk
- Granola – homemade or low sugar variety
- Fresh fruit – berries, bananas, stone fruit
- Coconut flakes
- Cinnamon, turmeric
- Raw nuts
- Hemp seeds, ground flaxseed
- Raw honey
- Whisk the milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl. (For a thin and runny chia pudding, use 1/2 cup chia seeds. For a thick chia pudding, use 3/4 cup chia seeds.)
- Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. It helps to stir the mixture every so often during this time, but don't worry if you can't. I usually do once before bed.
- Stir well before serving.
- Portion into bowl(s) and add your desired toppings. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.
