Recipe: Chai Chia Pudding
This is an easy starter recipe for exploring chia seeds. We recommend a few seasoning options here but it's a fun recipe to try with any of your favorite baking spices.
Works well with non-dairy milk or yogurt, like soy, almond, or coconut. The pudding will be thicker and creamier with a yogurt base. Mt. Baker Chai can be substituted with 1 tsp. Baking Spice or 1 tsp. ground Ceylon cinnamon plus 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom.
Mix all ingredients in a mason jar or other sealable container. Shake well and refrigerate overnight to let the chia seeds soak. Stir well before serving.
Serve chilled as a dessert or snack. Great over oats for breakfast. Add orange zest or crystallized ginger pieces for a boost of flavor. Stir in chopped mango, strawberries or other fresh or dried fruit pieces.
