Pinch of black pepper (trust me)

In a small pot on the stove bring all ingredients to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes stirring every 2 minutes or so.

Remove from the heat, add 1 ½ tablespoons of chia seeds (or ground chia if you prefer a smooth texture) stir through, transfer to glass jar or storage container.

Pop in the fridge to cool for at least 1-2 hours. Enjoy!
