The Perfect Chia Seed Pudding
Variation is key. This chia seed pudding has been the perfect twist-it-up breakfast item at home. Yes, I got courageous enough to jump off the oatmeal and peanut butter bandwagon. These little seeds are known for having 4 things: fibers, protein, omega 3 and antioxidants. & that ladies and gentlemen, would be a list of all the things I’m constantly talking about.
What’s great about chia seeds is that you can use them in many different ways. The way they become geltenious when soaked in liquid is very useful for making different food items. But of course, you can still use chia seeds over your salads, sandwiches, yogurt etc. But here, I’m going to share with you my family-approved chia seed pudding. Strawberries are a seasonal fruit, so you can definitely choose whichever fruit you like and have available at home.
