Tips for making this vegan Orange Creamsicle Chia Pudding:
You can use any dairy-free or dairy milk of your choice for very similar results.
You can omit the maple syrup altogether for a version free of added sugar, or you can replace it with honey, agave syrup or this sugar-free monk fruit syrup for a sugar-free version.
The vanilla extract is crucial for the ‘Creamsicle’ flavor. If you do not have extract, you can also use a pinch of vanilla bean powder as an alternative.
Freshly squeezed orange juice tastes best, but in a pinch, a splash of any orange juice will work, too.
Be certain to refrigerate for at least 6 hours for best results.
You can prepare this chia pudding ahead of time and keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
