If you haven’t made chia seed pudding yet, then the time is now!

I tried making it after seeing a recipe on Pinterest. It was tasty, and since it’s also healthy, what more can you ask for?

Simplicity! Yes, it’s easy too.

Chia seeds are packed with calcium, manganese and phosphorus, in addition to being a great source of healthy omega-3 fats, protein and fiber. The seeds are tasteless and tiny, so you don’t really notice them much when they are dry.

When they are soaked, however, they take on the texture of tapioca pudding. Some people love it, some hate it, but when you try them with a hint of sweetness and top them with fruit and nuts, you will be gobsmacked by just how delicious healthy can be!

I like to make both almond and coconut milk chia seed pudding, but you can use soy, cow’s milk and juice as well. The almond and coconut puddings look so much alike that I label them before putting them in the fridge, this way everyone in the family can choose their favorite with ease.

  4. Twist on a lid (like these [url href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000BYC4B/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0000BYC4B&linkCode=as2&tag=gardther-20&linkId=PGACAETGJSLVJDL3″ target=”_blank”]reusable mason jar storage lids[/url]) and shake it up.

  8. Serve topped with anything that you love, fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, and coconut. You can even add the extra ingredients in at the beginning and the flavours will all blend together. I did this with the coconut pudding and cut the coconut milk in half, replacing it with coconut water, to get the right texture of the final pudding.

  10. This chia seed pudding can also be added to smoothies for an extra health boost and to thicken them up. I find this a great way to get extra nutrition into a busy toddler!
