5 Minute Eggnog Chia Pudding

1 pudding
3 Hours 5 Minutes

Chia pudding is one of my favorite snacks to make because 1) it takes less than 5 minutes & 2) in just 2 tbsp is 4 gm protein and 11 gm fiber! Chia seeds are a great source of energy in fact, the Aztecs used to use chia seeds for a natural source of energy without a crash. I'm cutting back on coffee these days so trying to get any energy I can from my food!

Chia pudding is incredibly simple: take 1/4 cup chia seeds and put in a mason jar with 1 cup liquid (I used light eggnog here). Mix well and refrigerate overnight with a CLOSED LID. That's it! I try to make a couple each week just to have on hand & am loving experimenting with different Christmas flavors!
