This is a light and fresh chia pudding combining the mellow freshness of a fragrant green tea with the gentle creaminess of almond milk, a hint of vibrant lemon and sweet bursts of fresh blueberries. The recipe is gluten-free, sugar-free, IQS-friendly, organic (if you use organic ingredients), vegan/plant-based and has a Paleo option too.
