Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are packed with health benefits. Each tablespoon contains 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of plant-based protein, and 2.5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids. They also are a good source of magnesium and calcium. This superfood makes a wonderful breakfast pudding that can be made the night before!

1 ¼ cup almond milk (or any non-dairy milk of choice)
1-2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
