To make 1 chia pudding:

  1. Add the milk, chia seeds, sweetener and flavor of choice to a blender and mix for about 20 seconds.

To make a large batch:

  1. Triple or quadruple recipe for 1 flavor and make the same as you would a single pudding.  Then pour into 3-4 small cups and store them in the fridge.

  2. Rinse out the blender between each flavor and repeat until you have 12 cups of chia seed pudding ready to grab and go.
