Horchata Chia Pudding

This is my favorite midday snack or quick, on-the-go breakfast solution. It is packed with protein and fiber making it a great post-workout snack as well. I will highlight some shortcuts to the very simple recipe that I hope you will enjoy!

You will need a clean 1/2 pint jar with a lid. Canning jars are perfect for this task. Having the lid is important as a shortcut to mixing. Simply place the lid on and shake. Non-dairy milk is not required but it is preferred as this is a very light and refreshing snack that can be weighed down by dairy milk. Another great shortcut is to use a sugar-free, stevia-free horchata flavor which would eliminate the need to use cinnamon and vanilla.
