Chia pudding: it’s so quick and easy to make and also really healthy and delicious! This is a blueprint for chia pudding. From here, you can make all different kinds and flavors. In this recipe, we leave the chia seeds whole, which lends a very unique texture. Some people, like me!, love this texture. Other people, like my husband, don’t really enjoy it. You can blend the chia seeds if you prefer to have a smoother, more pudding-like consistency. Give this recipe a try if you prefer a blended consistency: chocolate strawberry blended chia pudding

Feel free to triple this recipe (or more!) and make lots of pudding at once. If you wait to add the fruit until you eat it, it will keep very well in the fridge for several days!
Pretty much anything you can think of, you can put on your pudding! What do you love layering on top of your bowl? Here are some ideas:
