Refreshing Chia Seed Pudding

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, no bake/raw, oil-free, refined sugar-free, & soy-free.

Thrown together in just a couple minutes! Be sure to make this in advance (I like making it before bed) so it has time to thicken up before eating. The thickness of the chia pudding will vary based on the kind of almond/coconut 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.
