FOR THE CHIA PUDDING
  1. 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  2. 1/2 cup chia seeds
  3. 1-3 tablespoons of coconut or agave nectar - to taste
  4. 1 vanilla bean or 1tsp of vanilla extract
SUGGESTED TOPPINGS
  1. Raw Granola - like Sattva Juicery's RawNolas
  2. Fresh fruit
  3. Coconut flakes
  4. Pure maple syrup
  5. Cinnamon
  6. Nuts and seeds
  7. Banana
Instructions
  1. Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then whisk again (this just helps prevent clumping).
  2. Cover and chill in the fridge for 2.5-3 hours, or overnight. It helps to stir the mixture every so often during this time, but don't worry if you can't.
  3. Stir well before serving. Portion into bowl(s) and add your desired toppings. Leftovers will keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
Notes
  1. The thickness of the chia pudding will vary based on the kind of almond milk you use, so don’t worry if it looks a bit thick or thin when you first try it out. If your pudding is too thin you can add more chia seeds and let it sit for 30 minutes more; if it’s too thick, try adding a touch more almond milk.
