Espresso Vanilla Chia Pudding

OMG Yum Yum Paleo Recipe

I am addicted to this pudding!  I love adding just a teaspoon of instant espresso.  Feel free to omit and add a little cocoa powder if you want!  I love putting in a large canning jar then just shaking in the morning and sharing with hubby or it makes a great afternoon snack.

I have also made this same pudding with a scoop of vanilla protein!  You will notice I did not add a sweetener.  I don't think it needs it but feel free to add honey or agave if you prefer!

Tip:  I am also hooked on making my own nut milk.  I will share the recipe with you!

To make 1 quart you will need 1 cup of raw almonds and 4 cups of water plus more for soaking.

In a pitcher add almonds and fill with about 4 cups of water place in the refrigerator overnight.  The next morning drain the almonds and rinse well in a colander.  Add the almonds and 4 cups of water to your blender and puree.  Strain the almond milk through a fine mesh strainer to grab onto any nut pieces.  Pour into a container (that covers) and refrigerate.  The milk will last for 5 days!
