This Chia Seed Pudding makes the perfect healthy breakfast! I am not just talking about a ch-ch-ch-chia pet here. Have you tried chia seeds? They are super good for you. I have only just tried them recently me myself. Chia is the Mayan word for strength. These little seeds were a big staple of the Aztec and Mayan diet. One single serving of chia seeds contains 42% of your daily need for fiber and it packs more omega 3 fatty acids than a piece of salmon. Chia seeds will absorb up to 12 times their own weight, making you feel full longer. They are great to throw in smoothies and pudding.
This dish is loosely adapted from Food Babe’s Chia Seed Fruit Salad. This chia seed pudding would be great served as breakfast or dessert. It would also be great with some of my homemade granola sprinkled on top.
