Notes

You can use any plant-based milk that you like, including coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk, or any other.  Coconut will give the thickest and creamiest texture (since it's the thickest milk).
If you want a healthier option with fewer calories and sugar, then you can use a plant-based milk that has no added sugar (unsweetened).  If you want some extra flavor and don't mind the extra calories, then you can use sweetened milk instead.  Also, some plant-based milks have flavors added to them such as vanilla, which can also add flavor to the chia pudding, without having to add any more ingredients.
An optional touch is to add fruit on top or mixed in when it's being served.
