Chia Seed Pudding

The Ultimate Chia Seed Pudding

For some of you Chia Seed Pudding may be ‘so last year’ or even 5 years ago for that matter, but I’ve only this year discovered Chia seeds/Chia seed pudding and I am definitely an enthusiast. Despite being so tiny, these little seeds are packed with good stuff. They’re full of antioxidants, omega 3’s, calcium, protein and fibre. Chia Seed pudding is a great way to start your day, as a healthy snack or even a dessert. Below are a couple of my favourite ways to top Chia Seed Pudding, but feel free to experiment with different fruits, nuts and toppings to your taste – that’s the fun part!
