OK. So maybe that recipe title is a little misleading. While this chia seed pudding won't be ready to eat in one minute you will be done measuring and mixing the ingredients and already have it chilling in the fridge by the time a minute's up. And if you're as busy as I am (which I'm sure you are) six hours will fly right by and you'll soon be licking your bowl of chia seed pudding clean.
Besides the fact that this pudding is so creamy and delicious I love the fact that it is so, SO easy to whip up. This busy mama of five can easily hold a baby while stirring together these four simple ingredients, pop it in the fridge, and by early afternoon have a healthy, energizing, nutrient dense snack to pull out of the fridge to reward myself for all the hard work I've done that day. You can't beat that!
My favorite coconut milk to use in this recipe (and almost any recipe calling for coconut milk) is Aroy-d. I love the flavor and that there are no additives or gums. One box of Aroy-d milk equals one cup which makes it perfect for this recipe--no measuring required--just open up the box and pour.
One Minute Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Fresh or frozen fruit to garnish (optional)
Whisk together first four ingredients in medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate six hours or overnight. Serve with fresh or frozen fruit if desired.
