1½ cups cashew milk, almond milk, or coconut milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup, more for serving
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
½ tablespoon Meyer lemon juice or orange juice, optional
lemon zest or a few drops of lemon oil, optional
seasonal fruit and/or chopped nuts, for topping
In a large jar or bowl, stir together the chia seeds, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, lemon juice, and lemon zest, if using.
Chill covered for 30 minutes, then stir again, incorporating the chia seeds that have sunk to the bottom. Chill for about 6 hours, or overnight, until the chia pudding is thick. If it gets too thick, stir in a little more milk to reach your desired consistency.
To serve, scoop chia pudding into bowls and top with fruit, nuts, and maple syrup, as desired.
