Chocolate Chia Lunchbox Puddings (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

I am always looking for ways to fill my daughter’s lunchbox with items that are delicious but also healthy — oh, and quick and easy. These simple puddings have few ingredients and set up overnight.Ā  You can make them in small lidded containers and just pop one in the lunchbox before your kids are off to school.

Ingredients:

1 cup Califia Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or plant-based milk of choice)
4-5 tablespoons chia seeds (4 if you like a soft pudding, 5 if firmer)
4 teaspoons maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract (2 tsp if you didn’t use the vanilla brand above)
2 tablespoon cocoa powder (or carob powder)

Process:

Combine ingredients in a blender and mix for 30 seconds.
Let sit for 5 minutes, and then blend again for 30 seconds.
Pour into small containers, cover, and refrigerate up to 5 days.

    • So, each batch takes up a sheet pan’s worth of crackers. I get about 42 crackers. But this is always a little different, depending on how I cut them. Sometimes I like a smaller cracker, sometimes a larger one. Generally, it gets us through 4 days.
