You will need:

  • Chia seeds - 2 tablespoons
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Additional ingredients to your taste

The key pint of this dessert is that you don’t need a lot of ingredients to prepare it, and you can determine their amount by eye. For the easiest pudding option, you'll need milk and chia seeds. Seeds must be soaked in milk and mixed well, pour the resulting mass into molds and refrigerate. Dessert will be ready in 20 minutes, but it is better to leave it for the night so that it turns out more dense and rich.

In this case, you can take any milk (cow, coconut, almond, oat), or you can replace it with yogurt. You can also add fruits, berries, nuts, cereals, honey and any other toppings that you like in the pudding. Experiment with different types of milk and toppings to find your perfect flavor combination.
