Cinnamon Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

Makes 5 1/2 cup servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Put almond milk in mason jar with lid or mixing bowl. Add cinnamon and then chia seeds.
  2. If using a mason jar drop the blender ball in the jar, put the lid on and shake. Shake several times over the next few minutes to ensure the seeds suspend in the almond milk and don’t clump on the bottom.
  3. If using a mixing bowl whisk the chia seed mixture for several minutes until the seeds are suspended in the liquid.
  4. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Enjoy with a dollop of yogurt and berries.

Recipe Notes

One of the easiest ways to make this recipe is in a quart mason jar with measurements on the side. Then you can make and store the pudding in the same container.

PRO TIP: Use a blender ball, you know that little thingy that comes in protein powder shaker bottles.
