THE EASIEST DARK CHOCOLATE CHERRY CHIA (VEGAN) PUDDING
1 1/2 cups non dairy milk (almond/ coconut/ hemp) are my favorites!

3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2-3 table spoons pure maple (or honey if non-vegan)

Just before serving separate into individual bowls (makes up to 4 servings) top with fresh cherries, and garnish with all of your favorite toppings!
