Instructions

Snack Idea #1: Chia Pudding Parfaits:

  1. Layer the chia pudding with desired toppings in a bowl or jar and grab a spoon!

~~Chia Pudding:~~

  1. Stir together the coconut milk, almond milk, and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add remaining ingredients and mix well, then pour into a container with air-tight lid and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to let it thicken. You should be able to store it for up to 3 days.
  2. If you prefer the texture of a smooth pudding you can blend it in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy. This can be done either before or after the chill time, but I find it's creamier when blended after it's been allowed to thicken.

Snack Idea #2: Nut Butter + Fruit Toast:

  1. Toast 1 or 2 pieces of your favorite bread and spread some nut butter on top. Layer it with some fruit and any other yummies you want!

Snack Idea #3: Loaded Yogurt Cups:

  1. This one is pretty self-explanatory. Open a yogurt container and load it with all the goods!
