*This is a basic recipe. On it's own, it has a very mild flavour. For added flavour and pizzazz, I recommend incorporating one of the following variations:
BANANA - Add one pureed banana to the mixture
CHOCOLATE - Use chocolate almond milk instead of unsweetened. Reduce agave nectar by 1 tbsp. Top with cacao nibs.
TROPICAL - use coconut milk in place of almond. Add 2 tbsp shredded coconut, and 1/4 cup crushed pineapple.
BERRY - Add in the puree of about 1/2 cup of your favourite berries. Add 1/4 more ground chia seed if pudding becomes too watery.
