Chia Pudding

I recently discovered chia pudding. Now, I admit, it looks weird, but don't let that stop you from trying it. The great thing about chia pudding is that you can really flavor it however you want, and it's really easy to make. It only takes three things: Liquid, flavoring of some kind, and chia seeds. There is really only one thing that can go wrong, and it's easy to avoid. I'll explain more below.

I usually mix it with a lot of coconut and maybe some pineapple, but, today, I made it with raspberries and it was just as good as usual. 

- 1 cup almond mik
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1/4 - 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 2-3 teaspoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla 

I like to mix my pudding in a pint jar with a lid. It makes a good amount and is easy to store.
Start by muddling the raspberries, vanilla, and honey in the the bottom of the jar. Next, add the milk and chia seeds and stir immediately. 
As I said before, there is only one way I can think of to mess this pudding up and it to not stir immediately. As soon as the chia seeds are added to liquid they will start to clump. So stir it up!

Then screw on the lid and put it in the refrigerator over night, or at least an hour or so.
That's it!

I'm just copying all these recipes so when I have money and/or the ingredients I'll be able to make them.
