Here is a very healthy take on traditional rice pudding. It’s very quick and simple to prepare, and provides all the health benefits of chia! You can also make this using regular nondairy milk instead of unsweetened, and adjust the amount of stevia.

1 cup unsweetened almond or other nondairy milk (plain or vanilla flavored)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 cup chia seeds

Liquid vanilla stevia drops, to taste

1/2 teaspoon orange zest

Combine the milk and cinnamon in a small saucepan and cook over low heat about 5 minutes. Do not let mixture come to a boil.

Stir in the vanilla, chia and orange zest.

Add stevia drops to taste.

Let the mixture thicken then spoon into small bowls.

Serve warm or chilled.

Keep refrigerated.
