First, add all the chia pudding ingredients, except the chia seeds, to a pot and place it on the stove on medium heat. Allow the ingredients to come to a boil.

Now turn off the heat and let the ingredients cool for 5-10 minutes.
Then stir in the chia seeds.
Transfer the via pudding to a bowl or jar and place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour (or overnight for an easy breakfast).

How to serve:
This pudding is delicious served as is, but feel free to top it with chocolate chips, shredded coconut, more fresh raspberries or other fruit or even chopped nuts or seeds. Chia pudding is normally eaten cold but you could also heat it before serving if you prefer warm chia pudding.
How to store:
Store any leftover chia pudding in the fridge in an airtight container or jar for up to 5 days. It will thicken the longer it sits so feel free to stir in a bit more coconut milk before serving.
