This so-called pudding is ridiculously easy. Criminal, almost. It literally takes just a minute to put together, plus the time needed to thicken in the fridge. Kids are often more likely to eat this if you throw a few berries on top once it’s done (and berries add loads of antioxidants and fiber), so I do recommend that extra step.
NOTE: If you want a thicker pudding, you may add more Chia Seeds. However, we’ve found that the flavor is best with the amount given.
What You’ll Need:
2 cups nondairy milk, unsweetened (we use vanilla almond milk)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup chia seeds
3 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar
Optional for topping: Fresh berries of your choice
1. Place all of the ingredients (except the berries) in an airtight container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake very well.
2. Place in the fridge for a few hours, or until thickened. Shake or stir very well and enjoy. If desired, top with fresh berries just before serving.
This will store, refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to a week!
