Thanks to Cyndi for the inspiration for this awesome pudding!! This is how I made it. It makes one serving. This was my first attempt to make anything with chia seeds and I thought it turned out great.
Mix in a small bowl:
2T chia seeds
1/2 cup skim or lowfat milk (or milk sub)
2T coconut milk
a few cardamom pods
a dash of cinnamon
a dash of salt
a few drops of vanilla
a generous pinch of sliced almonds (pistachios would be good too)
a pinch of Splenda, or more if you want a sweeter pudding
I think that's all...I'm going to go make some now for breakfast tomorrow so I'll come back and edit if I realise I forgot anything. Mix well until all the seeds are separated and chill in the fridge overnight. The first batch I made only chilled a couple hours, and it was ok, but overnight was much thicker, with a richer flavor.
Make sure and pick out the cardamom pods, or just eat around them.
