Creepy Pudding Cups (gluten-free, dairy-free)
These pudding cups are a fun way to celebrate Halloween, and are super easy to make. Feel free to garnish them with other candy or even plastic spiders! Kids can also help by mixing the chia seeds with water, adding ingredients to the blender, and garnishing with the gummy worms!
Note: If a creamy pudding is desired, add the chia mixture to the blender with the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
