Frequently asked questions
Does it keep? Once prepared, this chia pudding will last in the fridge for 5 days. Store it in an air tight container or jar for best results.
How do I make apple pie spice? If you do not have apple pie spice, combine 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 tbsp nutmeg, and 1 tsp allspice. Mix well. Use a total of 1 – 1 1/2 tsp for this recipe.
Can I make it refined sugar free? Yes! This recipe is naturally refined sugar free since it is just sweetened with maple syrup. You can substitute the maple syrup for either honey or coconut sugar. I personally think the maple syrup adds a great Fall flavor though.
