Vanilla Chia Pudding


1 1/4 c unsweetened almond milk

1/4 c chia seeds

1 Tbsp pure maple syrup

1 tsp pure vanilla extract 

*small amount of fresh vanilla bean paste ~1/8 tsp (optional -- I purchase a bag of vanilla beans that I keep on hand for things like this.)


1.  Combine all ingredients into a glass container.  Mix well.  Set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.  Stir well just before eating.  (The seeds can tend to clump together at the bottom over time.)  Enjoy!
