And in case you aren’t familiar with chia seeds, chia seeds are an edible seed that contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. They don’t have much taste by themselves, but they absorb the flavors of whatever they’re soaked in. And yes, they are the same seeds used in Chia Pets!
One of my favorite things about chia seed pudding is it can be made ahead of time and eaten throughout the week. I like to assemble mine in pint-size mason jars, or any other small Tupperware, and keep them stocked in my fridge to eat as a light breakfast or quick healthy snack. You can even make them in the actual jar by adding in enough ingredients to make one serving, then put on your lid and shake until thoroughly mixed, then leave in your fridge overnight, or until that afternoon slump comes around and you need a quick pick me up!
