Vanilla Almond Chia Seed Pudding
2 cups unsweetened hemp seed milk or almond milk or coconut milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla or almond or lemon extract, I use Frontier Herbs
1-2 TBS pure maple syrup, raw honey or agave. I get my ingredients from the Egg Basket at NewBo.
1- Blend chia seeds into a powder in Vitamix or Magic Bullet (or other blender if need be, I’m not as familiar with other brands being able to powder seeds and herbs). Pour into bowl with lid, add in the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Do so quickly because it will firm up fast.
2- Chill this in the fridge for at least an hour.
3- It is good for up to 5 days.
Enjoy!!! Try different flavor combinations like lemon extract, berries on top, cocoa powder etc!
