Basic Chia Pudding

Kathy Beach's Favorite Breakfast

• 1/2 cup coconut milk (I use the SoDelicious brand culinary coconut milk)

• 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

• 3 Tablespoons chia seeds

• ground cinnamon (to taste)


In a sealable glass bowl, whisk together coconut milk, almond milk, and vanilla extract until consistency is smooth. Whisk in chia seeds, cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight (until mixture is thick, like pudding). When ready to eat, spoon into a bowl and top with cinnamon. You could add some fresh berries too. You could also add 1 Teaspoon of Maple Syrup. Recipe courtesy of Terry Walter's awesome new book Eat Clean Live Well!
