Take chia seeds on-the-go with this naturally sweetened, vegan, and gluten free recipe. The pudding can be a healthy dessert or even a breakfast dish.
Add all ingredients except sweetener to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. Sweeten to taste with maple syrup at this time. If blending, you can sweeten later with maple syrup or dates.
Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3–5 hours (or until it's achieved a pudding-like consistency).
If blending, add to a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Sweeten to taste.
Keep leftovers covered in the fridge for 2–3 days, though best when fresh.
Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola, or coconut whipped cream.
