Chia seed breakfast pudding

Ingredients

1/4 cup of chia seeds
1-1 1/2 cups of brazil milk (or another nut/seed milk of your choice)
Few drops of vanilla stevia (or alcohol free vanilla extract)
Grated zest of hald an unwaxed lemon
Handful of sesame seeds
2 handfuls of blueberries
Drizzle of maple syrup or honey

Preparation

1
Mix the chia seeds and milk in a jar with a lid (a kilner jar is perfect). Make sure the lid is on tight!
2
Shake well to mix. Leave the jar in the fridge for a minimum of an hour (longer is better, you could use slightly less milk, 1 cup, if leaving for under 2 hours).
3
A great tip is to make it before you go to bed, leave in the fridge overnight, and you'll have it ready for breakfast when you wake up!
4
Dress with the grated lemon zest, sesame seeds, blueberries and maple for a delicious taste sensation that you'll never get from plain old cereal!
