Blueberry Cardamom Chia Seed Pudding

Serves: 4-6

1/2 cup chia seeds
2 1/2 cups almond milk (or rice, soy, or light coconut milk)
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 1/2 tsp ground cardamom spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Blend milk, blueberries, cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla, and syrup together in a blender on high until smooth. Pour blueberry mixture over chia seeds, and stir thoroughly with a whisk or fork.

Let rest for five minutes, and stir again. Then, 10 minutes later, stir again. Refrigerate, and let sit overnight.

In the morning, give it a stir, and check texture. If it’s too thick, simply add more almond milk; the texture should be similar to that of tapioca pudding (just imagine tiny tapioca pearls!). Serve and enjoy.
