Servings 2 servings
- 1/2 cup Chia Seeds (I use Navitas Organics)
- 2-3 Tbsps pure maple syrup (See Notes!)
- 2 tsps Chai spice mix, homemade (See Notes!)
- 1 1/2 cups Almond milk (I use Califia Farms; You can use your fave plant-based milk!)
- 1-2 Tbsps Almond butter (I use Justin's)
- Cocowhip, optional
- cinnamon sticks (I use McCormick Spice)
Add all ingredients to a medium bowl, stirring until well combined.
Let mixture sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes or until it begins to thicken and becomes creamy. Stir slightly.
To serve, add chia pudding to a cup or jar and top with Cocowhip (or your favorite topping), additional chai spices, and a cinnamon stick, if preferred.
STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
TOASTED PECANS (TOPPING): Add chopped pecans to a baking sheet and toasting them in the oven (400 degrees Fahrenheit) for 5-10 minutes, tossing them halfway to avoid browning on one side.
NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.
SWEETENER: Instead of maple syrup, you can simply use Agave.
CHAI SPICE MIX: To make your own homemade Chai Tea spice blend: 2 Tbsps ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 Tbsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground allspice, 1 tsp ground cardamom, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
OVERNIGHT OPTION: Follow steps and then tightly cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours).
