Overnight chia pudding with swirls of cherry compote and topped with fresh cherries. This cherry overnight chia pudding is simple, delicious, and perfect for a summer breakfast.
  • ⅓ cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or sugar, more to taste
  • 1 cup depitted cherries
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar, more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon water
  1. In a medium sized jar, add chia seeds, vanilla almond milk, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Use a spoon to stir until all the seeds have dispersed. Refrigerate the chia seed mixture overnight so that the chia seeds can thicken.
  2. In a small pot, add cherries with pits removed, sugar, and water. Cook over low to medium heat for several minutes until the cherries have softened and appear almost jam like. Let the cherry compote cool before using.
  3. Once you're ready to serve the chia pudding, divide the chia pudding into two small jars or glasses.
  4. Use a spoon to swirl as much of the cherry compote into the chia pudding as you would like.
  5. Serve the cherry overnight chia pudding cold.
