For chia seeds puding, you will need:
- a cup of coconut, oat or any other plant based milk
- 4 spoons of chia seeds

Put chia seeds in the cup with coconut milk, agave syrup and vanilla. Then put that cup in the refrigerator, best over the night. The next day, when it’s hardened, put coconut chips and fruit on it, and if you like, melted chocolate.
