- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup maple syrup (or you can use date syrup for a whole food sweetener)
- 1 vanilla bean, sliced in half with the seeds scraped out*
- 1/4 cup fresh or frozen raspberries (optional, for topping)
- Combine the chia seeds, milk, maple syrup, and the seeds of one vanilla bean into a medium mixing bowl. Use a whisk to stir together.
- Set aside for about 10 minutes and then whisk again to ensure there are no lumps.
- Divide the pudding between two serving bowls and top with raspberries, if desired.
- Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. This will allow the pudding to set.
- Serve cold or at room temperature.
*If you don’t have a vanilla bean, you can always use a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a pinch. You won’t get the texture that you would from a real vanilla bean, you you’ll get the flavor.
