What to know before you start:

Use any plant-based milk you like.

You can replace the 2/3 cup (150 ml) water-coconut milk combination with almond, hemp, or other plant-based milk. Water & coconut is my favorite.

Find your own perfect chia pudding consistency.

This recipe makes a nice thick pudding. Add a little more liquid to thin.

Prevent clumps — make sure you shake/stir it well.

You know you’re finished shaking/stirring when the chia seeds are separated (not sticking together) and remain in the mixture rather than floating to the top (note that some will still float).
