  • ½ C Chia seeds
  • 2 C Unsweetened almond or coconut milk (more or less depending on how thick you want it)
  • 1 T Agave nectar, maple syrup, or honey
  • 1 t Vanilla extract, or almond, coconut, or lemon extracts
  • ½ t Ground Cinnamon, Chai spice mix, Apple pie spice, Pumpkin pie spice, or Allspice (optional)
  • ¼ C Ground nuts and raisin mixture, (optional) just whole nuts like unsalted walnuts, pecans and almonds are good, too.
  1. In a quart-sized jar with a tight fitting lid, combine chia seeds and milk of choice.
  2. With a spoon, stir very well, a few times, for the next 6 minutes.
  3. Add the sweetener, vanilla or flavoring, spice mix, if using, and stir well again.
  4. Tighten lid and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, or, up to overnight.
  5. Tips for the best texture:
  6. If this is your first time making this, you’ll want to decide how thick or thin you like it.
  7. Is it thick enough, or too thick; it will depend on the milk you use.
  8. Once you remove from the refrigerator and stir, if it is too thick, add more milk to thin, stir less, and eat as desired.
  9. Or, if it is too thin, stir more before refrigerating, or add up to ¼ cup more chia seed, and wait for another 30 minutes for it to thicken, then stir again and serve.
