Now, I always have a jar of that healthy dessert in my fridge for afternoon snacks or to serve with fruits after dinner and to finish off a great meal with a sweet twist.

You can adjust the quantity of almond milk depending on which additional ingredients you use.  You need to consider if those will add liquid to your mixture or not.

Chia seeds are best-known for their great content in Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, calcium, magnesium, iron and their high-quality protein content.  You can feel good about eating this delicious and healthy dessert!  Enjoy!
