Easy Strawberry Banana Nice-Cream

Almond Chia Pudding

A perfect pick-me-up for a weekend. I personally love making chia pudding because it’s one of the most versatile and effortless breakfasts to put together.

Ingredients: 1/4 cup baby oats 1/2-3/4 cup almond milk (add more if needed) 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds 2 tbsp almond butter 1 tbsp organic honey Toppings: Kiwi Sliced granny apples Dried cranberries...
