  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoon sunbutter (sunflower seed butter)
  • Optional: strawberries and blackberries
  • Optional: pumpkin and sunflower seeds


  • In a mason jar that's at least 12oz, combine the milk with vanilla and honey. Shake, shake, shake your booty (and the container) till fully combined. Add the ¼ cup of chia seeds and shake a little more. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes, then stir the seeds to make sure they're fully mixed with the milk. Continue to chill for another hour or overnight. 
  • Stir in the sunbutter, berries, and seeds. Enjoy! 


  • I used homemade hemp milk for extra protein (recipe linked above)
  • I used 1 teaspoon of honey, but I think certain types of milk already add sweetness. My favorite is using hemp milk, but any kind will do.
