Chia "Pudding" Recipe: In a shaker bottle, mix together 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 1/2 cupsalmond milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoonmaple syrup,honey, or equivalentStevia. For chocolate flavor, add a teaspoon ofcocoa powder. For additional protein, add a scoop of your favorite unflavored protein powder. (If using a sweetened, flavored protein powder, you may want to omit the vanilla and sweeteners.) Shake well and make sure chia seeds are completely covered by almond milk. Refrigerate overnight. The chia seeds will soak up the milk and become thick, similar to tapioca. Eat with a spoon or "slurp it up" with a straw. Delicious and nutritious!
