Easy Almond Joy Chia Pudding

I enjoy making this coconut milk chia pudding recipe because it's easy and I can find all of the ingredients at my local market. There is no baking required, and it's served in individual jars for guests. For more flavor, add shredded coconut. —Ashley Altan, Hanover, Maryland
