This Chia Seed Pudding Recipe* is a super simple, healthy, and great tasting pudding that you can make for breakfast or enjoy as a snack any time. This is so easy, but requires a little planning in that it is going to taste best when it’s made ahead. In fact, I suggest you keep a bowl in the fridge so you have it available when you want a healthy snack.

Chia seeds are on the forefront of clean eating. I’m hearing lots of people talking about them, and let me tell you, what I’ve heard is true! Honestly, I’ve noticed a big difference in my personal endurance since I’ve been incorporating them in my own eating. I add chia seeds to oatmeal, salads, smoothies, and more. When they are dry, chia seeds are kind of similar to poppy seeds. When you soak them, they plump up, and I would describe them as sort of like tapioca, sweet and soft on the outside, with a crunchy-type of center.
