1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup milk (dairy or dairy-free like almond, coconut, or soy milk)
1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to your desired sweetness)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Toppings of your choice (e.g., fresh berries, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, shredded coconut)
Mix the Chia Seeds and Liquid:
In a bowl or container, combine the chia seeds and your choice of milk (dairy or dairy-free).
Add Sweetener and Flavor:
Stir in 1-2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup, depending on your preference for sweetness. Add vanilla extract for extra flavor.
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, making sure the chia seeds are well incorporated into the liquid.
Chill and Rest:
Cover the bowl or container and place it in the refrigerator. Let the chia seed pudding mixture rest for at least 4-6 hours or overnight. During this time, the chia seeds will absorb the liquid and thicken, creating a pudding-like texture.
After the resting period, give the chia seed pudding a good stir to break up any clumps and ensure it’s well mixed.
Customize your chia seed pudding with your favorite toppings. You can use fresh berries, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or any other toppings you prefer.
