Overnight Quinoa-Chia Chocolate Breakfast Pudding

This breakfast recipe could not be more simple; mixing four ingredients and stashing it in the fridge to chill overnight. The flavor is lightly chocolaty without being overly sweet, with a nutty/crunchy texture, filling with a fragrant flavor of Chinese Five Spice. The pudding is packed with protein, fiber, and energy-boosting nutrition to start the day! Dairy-free and gluten-free. To add a seasonal touch or sweeten it further, consider sliced fruit, nuts, coconut and/or a drizzle of honey.
