Ingredients:

2 cups vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Try different liquids. You can use coconut milk, rice milk, or hemp milk.

Mix up the mix ins. Add cocoa powder, nuts, fruits, flavors or spices to customize your creation.

Get nutty. Add in nut butters for a rich treat.

Power up. Put in some protein powder to turn this pudding into a filling breakfast or snack.
