Instructions

  1. Combine almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
  2. Refrigerate and cover overnight (or at least for 4 hours). The chia pudding should be thick when done as the chia seeds soak up the milk. If needed, add more chia seeds, stir and refrigerate again.
  3. Top with sliced strawberries and crumbled shortbread cookies.
