HOW TO MAKE CHIA PUDDING WITH ALMOND MILK
Have you ever made overnight oats? If so, making chia pudding is quite similar.
First, whisk the almond butter, maple syrup and milk together. Since we’re making almond butter pudding, I do recommend using almond milk for a little extra almond-y flavor, but technically speaking any kind of milk works.
Next, stir in the chia seeds. You’ll want to whisk everything together–chia seeds included–for 30 seconds or so. Then, place the bowl in the refrigerator, or you can distribute the mixture into cups or jars and refrigerate them for at least three hours. I find that it’s easiest to make chia pudding at night so then breakfast is ready for you in the mornings.
I opted to top it with almonds and an extra drizzle of almond butter for good measure. Additional toppings include: peanuts, banana and/or chocolate chips. Regardless of what you top it with, you need—yes, NEED—to make this almond butter chia pudding if you’re an almond butter lover. ..which I know you are because we already talked about it 😉
