Pack 2/3 cup chia seeds, 1 tsp vanilla extract, a pinch of nutmeg, ¼ cup sugar, and a pinch of salt in a zip-top bag.
Pack ½ a packet powdered milk or 1/3 a packet of powdered coconut milk in a snack-size bag and pack 3 tbsp toasted coconut in a foil or paper packet.
In camp: At least an hour before you will want your pudding, add 2 cups of water to a wide-mouth water bottle. Add chia mixture and milk to bottle.
Divide between two bowls and cover for about an hour.
Chia seeds are chock-full of calcium, Omega-3s, and antioxidants. Sprinkle them in your oatmeal, add them to your smoothie, or make delicious pudding. [image: Health Gauge / Flickr]
