I guess I'm a little behind when it comes to the Chia seed fad, and, in particular, Chia seed pudding. I've been using Chia seeds in my granola and thrown into oatmeal for a while now, but I've been hesitant about the idea of turning them into a creamy dessert. Now this dessert isn't for everyone. I must admit that I wasn't a huge fan of the texture, but my husband liked it a lot (he also said that it reminded him of frog eggs, and, well, I had to agree). Chia seed pudding is reminiscent in texture to tapioca pudding, so to enjoy Chia pudding, you're probably going to need to enjoy that texture. If you do, then this dessert is for you. It's an easy and healthy dessert that is full of fiber, Omega 3, and Omega 6.
You can flavor the pudding anyway you want. I went with vanilla for the first time because I didn't want to overwhelm the natural flavors of the Chia seeds. You can mix in any spices or fruit you like, or add them to the top when serving. This recipe will serve four people.
