Chia Puds are the ultimate in breakfast-prepping for the week.  Grab your jars, line ’em up, multiply this recipe by the amount of jars you have, and your brekkie is done for the week in about 5 minutes.  Perfect to grab-and-go, and they’ll travel well in school bags and handbags alike.

This recipe has been made with nut butter and nut milk (great for after school for those who can tolerate nuts), but it can be easily swapped for coconut milk (delicious, but works with any milk you choose) and the nut butter can be swapped for a seed butter such as sunflower or tahini (sesame)… OR! You could swap it out altogether and stir through some yoghurt or even some shredded coconut.
