Chia Breakfast Pudding

If you want a quick, power-packed breakfast, this simple pudding allows for lots of variation.

2 T Chia seed
1 cup liquid (we like milk or a milk alternative)
2 T chopped nuts and seeds (we keep a container of chopped nuts in the fridge and grind flax)
1 T maple syrup or other sweetener (I try to use extra fruits so i don't need this, or stevia, but it tastes best with maple)
Handful of fruits (I love blueberries or raspberries and grapes, plus shredded coconut)
Optional toppings (we use wheat germ, wheat grass or alfalfa powder as a multivitamin alternative)

Just put all together and let sit five minutes for the chia seeds to thicken the milk into a pudding. 
You can make this the night before, but it is so fast and easy there isn't really a need. Although some people soak their oats the night before and then put the chia in the morning to make their oatmeal (hot or cold). So you could try that.
