    1. Combine Chia Seeds and Milk:
      • In a mixing bowl, combine the chia seeds and almond milk. Stir well to ensure the chia seeds are evenly distributed in the milk.
    2. Add Sweetener and Vanilla:
      • Add honey or maple syrup for sweetness, adjusting to your taste preferences.
      • Stir in the vanilla extract for a delightful aroma and flavor.
    3. Mix Thoroughly:
      • Stir the mixture vigorously to prevent clumping of the chia seeds.
    4. Refrigerate:
      • Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours or overnight. During this time, the chia seeds will absorb the liquid and create a pudding-like consistency.
    5. Serve:
      • Once the chia pudding has set, give it a good stir to fluff it up. You can add a little more almond milk if you prefer a thinner consistency.
    6. Toppings (Optional):
      • Serve your Healthy Basic Chia Pudding with your favorite toppings, such as fresh berries, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired.
    7. Enjoy:
      • Savor the creamy and nutritious goodness of your Chia Pudding. It makes for a perfect breakfast or a healthy dessert.
    Pro Tips
    • Experiment with different toppings like coconut flakes, cacao nibs, or dried fruits.
    • To make a chocolate chia pudding, add 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mixture before refrigerating.
    • Customize the sweetness level to your preference by adjusting the amount of honey or maple syrup.
