Lately I’ve become a little obsessed with chia seeds. They’re super healthy and so tasty! I throw a handful on my cereal, top my yogurt with them, and even use them in recipes. But one thing I hadn’t tried was chia pudding. Even as a chia seed lover, this seemed a bit strange to me, but I wanted to give it a try so yesterday I made my first batch!
Yummy and full of protein and fiber, it’s a perfect breakfast food but it would also make a great after-school snack! Just make it the night before, and you’re good to go for the next day.
The topping possibilities are endless! Fruit is a perfect allergy-friendly choice but there are lots of other options as well. I also tried a nut-free trail mix that I had with seeds, dried fruit and chocolate chips.
