CHIA SEED PUDDING RECIPE
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 can coconut milk
4 tablespoons agave
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons nonalcoholic vanilla extract
fresh fruit for garnish
1. In a large bowl, add the coconut milk, then slowly start adding the chia seeds to milk. By slowly adding the seeds and not dumping them all in at once, you prevent clumping of the seeds.
2. Add the agave, cinnamon, and vanilla extract, and stir everything together.
3. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 3 hours (you can also leave it overnight) to allow the chia seeds to absorb liquid. This is how the mixture becomes a pudding. The longer you let it sit, the thicker the mixture will become.
4. Garnish with fresh fruit of choice and enjoy!
