I run across chia seed pudding recipes often and they're mainly listed as breakfast foods - probably because they need some forethought and planning (similar to overnight oats). In my house, I don't do so awesome with that forethought and planning piece very often, so they're frequently a snack or a dessert that I can pull together within about 20 minutes. Regardless, it's just pretty dang delicious. With it being low in sugar, full of fiber, iron, calcium, and Omega-3 fatty acids, it's a good choice and SO simple. Did you know that 28-gram, or 1-ounce, serving of chia seeds also contains 5.6 grams of protein?!
Another super awesome part? They're SO versatile. This recipe below is the basic one - but you can sub in/out fruits, flavors, mix-ins, toppings, layer with purees, really ANYTHING you want and there you have it. Dress it up or dress it down and you still have a healthy little bowl of tastiness. How do you enjoy your chia pudding?
