Today’s recipe makes for a perfect grab-and-go breakfast or a filling snack.
Chia seeds are full of healthy fats, fiber, protein and calcium and pair well with just about anything due to their very neutral flavor. The longer you let chia seeds sit in liquid the more they will thicken, so if you like a thicker pudding then leave them in the refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Since the pudding will last in the fridge about 3 days, try making it in batches to grab for easy breakfasts. There are endless flavor variations you can experiment with for chia pudding. This recipe, with its sweet mango and fruity blueberries, is great for kids as well.
