What is Chia Pudding?

Chia seed pudding is a simple and delicious way to easily get the benefits of chia seeds. It takes minutes to make and has enough protein and nutrients to be a quick, on-the-go breakfast option.

Despite their tiny appearance, chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse. They’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium, fiber and protein. Plus, these minuscule ingredients are simple to make into a pudding because they absorb up to 10 times their weight in water! Not only does this make chia seeds a great starting point for breakfast, a healthy snack or textured dessert, but it also means that they will help you stay hydrated.
