Basic Chia seed pudding

When chia seeds come into contact with liquids they swell and the outside of the seed takes on a gel like consistency.  To make a chia seed pudding you mix the measured seeds with your choice of liquid, usually a nut milk of some kind.  You need to keep stirring every 5 minutes until the seeds are no longer clumping but are swollen enough to form a uniform mix,  you can then place the pudding in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.  Stir once again and then decant the pudding into separate bowls or glasses for serving.  Usually other ingredients will be added to give the chia pudding a flavour and texture if desired.  For instance it can be sweetened with honey or agave nectar, vanilla essence could be added you could use a nut milk that has been blended with cardamom. A fruit purée could be layered on top or a nut butter could be added, the options are vast and I just have fun with mine!
