Almond Chia Pudding with Oranges

I first made chia pudding shortly after moving to Idaho in 2013.  It's not something that I have really made since I got married, since I was fairly sure that my hubby would not be a fan.  This pudding is great because you can do all sorts of different flavor combinations to totally customize it.

This version uses almond extract and mandarin orange slices, but would be equally delicious with cherries, mangoes, raspberries, and you can substitute vanilla extract for the almond.

I love how light, refreshing, and filling this pudding is.  And the nutty crunch of the chia is actually quite delightful.  And, to my surprise, my hubby actually didn't mind it!  So I may have to make a chocolate version to push him over the edge!















Almond Chia Pudding with Oranges

Ingredients:

1 c. milk (almond milk, coconut milk, or cow's milk)
1 c. plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp almond extract
2 Tbs honey
1/2 c. chia seeds

Mandarin orange slices or other fruit

Directions:

In a quart jar, shake together the milk, yogurt, extract and honey until smooth and combined.  Add in the chia seeds and shake again until thoroughly mixed throughout.

Refrigerate the jar for one hour.  The pudding should be thick and ready to eat, however, if it is still runny, shake or stir again, and return to the fridge for another hour until the pudding is set.

Layer with fruit and...

Enjoy!
