Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

Last night I finally got around to trying a chia seed pudding recipe that I could make overnight. I wish I'd done it sooner! The delicious, chilled chia seed pudding is a perfect summer breakfast. It's sort of like tapioca pudding, but much healthier.

Chia seeds have a ton of health benefits. They're full of omega-3 healthy fats, they pack quite the protein and fiber punch for their calories (roughly 65 calories for 2 tablespoons), and many other wonderful health benefits.

1/4 cup chia seeds
1 1/4 cup almond milk (vanilla unsweetened)
1/4 cup fruit of your choice (I used blueberries)
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 medium Mason jar
Nutrition estimate -- 250-275 calories, 9 g protein, 18 g fiber, 15 g fat, 30 g carbohydrates

1. Put all your ingredients into the Mason jar and stir it up.
pre-shaking and stirring

2. Put the cap on the Mason jar, tightly, and shake it vigorously for 30 seconds or so.

3. Put the jar in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
4. Open and enjoy!
it doesn't look that good, but it tastes delicious!
