  1. Mix milk, sugar, nutmeg, cardamom, and cloves together in a small bowl. Stir in chia seeds until well combined. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and sets to desired consistency, 3 to 4 hours.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute brown sugar or honey for the raw if desired.
  • This will make a thick pudding, almost like tapioca. Try adding more milk if you want a thinner pudding.
