Looks really good I just haven't made it yet. I've never made anything with chia before so I'm wondering if it would work to use regular milk to make this pudding? Don't want to mess it up!

I made it as is except I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Therefore I omitted the vanilla. This is one of the easiest tastiest recipes I have ever tried!
