🧊 How to store

  1. Refrigerator storage: Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days
  2. Freezer storage: It is possible to freeze chia pudding, but I recommend freezing in single servings. To freeze, add to airtight containers and freeze up to two month. To thaw, remove from freezer into refrigerator for 24 hours and then enjoy within 2-3 days.
