4th of July - Chia Seed Pudding

Untitled design-23.png

Celebrate this 4th of July with a healthy treat that the whole family will love!

Chia seed pudding is one of my favorite treats … yes, and even sometimes my favorite breakfast!

I love the thick pudding like consistency and the slight sweetness from the berries and almond milk … but the best part is that it’s healthy!!

Chia seed pudding is packed with protein, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids.

One ounce of chia seeds contains 4.7 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber!

The base is fairly easy to make and can last for a few days in the fridge.

For this special 4th of July chia seed pudding, I am topping mine with blueberries and strawberries!

For an extra special treat you can top yours with fresh almond milk whipped topping!!
