Why Make this Recipe?

There are so many reasons to love this flax chia pudding recipe:

1. Convenience: Like overnight oats, this pudding can be prepared the night before, so you can grab it and go in the morning.

2. Nutrition Powerhouse: Chia seeds and flaxseeds are nutritional superstars. Chia seeds are high in fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, while flaxseeds are a healthy and excellent source of fiber, omega-3s, and lignans.

3. Versatility: You can customize this pudding with your favorite flavors and toppings, making it a versatile breakfast or snack option.

4. Plant-Based: This recipe is entirely plant-based, making it suitable for vegans and those following a plant-based diet.

5. Easy:  Just blend, add/stir and let time do the work from there.

Why Use JOI in this Recipe?

At JOI, we believe in making plant-based eating easy and delicious. Our plant milk concentrate is the perfect addition to this flax chia pudding recipe because of

1. Creaminess: JOI adds a rich, creamy texture to the pudding. Yes, rich and creamy...hold the oils, gums and fillers (no, thank you)!

2. Nutrition: JOI is made from 100% almond, cashews, hemp...you get the drift.  Plus, because you control how much JOI is in your recipe, you can crank up the nutrition.  Most nut milk is mostly water. With JOI, you can actually reap the benefits of nuts, grains and seeds in a real way.

3. Convenience: With JOI, plant milk is only 30 seconds away, straight off the pantry shelf . So ditch the processed, store-bought alternatives. Never run out of clean-label plant milk again.

4. Versatility: From milk to creamy dips, dressings, sauces and soups, JOI is the Swiss army knife of your kitchen! Don't stop at milk.

Substitutions and Customizations

One of the best things about this flax chia pudding recipe is its versatility. Here are some substitutions and customizations you can try:

- Milk: Swap in whatever JOI you have on your pantry shelf!

- Sweeteners: Instead of dates, you can use maple syrup, date syrup, agave, honey (if not vegan), or your preferred sweetener.

- Protein Boost: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder or adaptogenic powder (like a mushroom mix) for an extra kick.

- Flavor Variation: Experiment with different flavors by swapping out cocoa powder for matcha powder, turmeric, spices, or fresh fruit infusions.

- Toppings: Get creative with your toppings! Try fresh or dried fruits, nuts, seeds, granola, or even a drizzle of JOI.
