Vanilla and fruit chia seed pudding

Yield: 1 Serving

Ingredients:

¾ cup of Milk Substitute (coconut, cashew, almond or soy)

2 ½ tablespoons Chia Seeds

½ teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1 teaspoon Lite & Sweet

¼ teaspoon Sea Salt

For Garnish:

¼ cup of Chopped Fruit (your favorite kind)

Directions:

  1. In an 8 oz. mason jar, add all the ingredients except for the fruit. Screw the jar lid on tightly and shake all the ingredients in the jar together to mix.
  2. Refrigerate the jar of ingredients for at least 8 hours; preferably overnight.
  3. Check the pudding after 8 hours to see if it has reached a thickened consistency, slightly thinner than the consistency of Greek Yogurt, stir it up one more time. Then top it with your favorite fruit and take it to-go with you for a healthy quick breakfast or snack!
