The perfect make-ahead breakfast or snack, chia pudding is creamy, satisfying and loaded with protein, fiber and omega-3s. It’s also vegan, gluten-free, paleo and keto. Plus, it’s beyond easy.

There are hundreds of chia pudding recipes out there (everything from key lime to pumpkin spice), but Eating Bird Food offers a ratio that seems to work every time.

3-4 Tablespoons of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid (any nut or seed milk, coconut milk or even fresh juice).
Optional: add a pinch of sea salt, any desired spices or flavorings, something sweet (mashed banana, maple syrup, dried fruit) and something with texture, like chopped nuts.

Shake it up in a mason jar and leave in the fridge for for three hours or overnight.
