Chia seed pudding is so incredibly easy to make. Don’t forget this is ONLY 4 ingredients and most of the ingredients are kitchen staples. Not only is this recipe easy but it's incredibly healthy and jam-packed with important nutrients. Using honey in place of sugar adds natural sweetness. Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants and are high in protein, omega-3, and fiber. The vanilla really adds an immense amount of flavor, making this the perfect treat anytime anywhere. Plus, it’s so healthy it can definitely pass as breakfast. If that doesn’t get you running off to make this right now, I don’t know what will! Happy making!

    The chia seeds i see at my local Aldi are black. Is there another variety? Wondering how black seeds make white pudding.

      The seeds are black! The milk makes the pudding. Milk is white.
