Chia seeds anyone? This is an extremely healthy and easy snack that only takes 3 ingredients, and even better yet, is gluten and dairy free… don’t let it scare you, I promise it tastes soo good. Chia seeds have been a healthy trend going around for awhile now and they have so many health benefits. They fill you up with fiber, protein, have more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and absorb 30 times their volume in liquid helping you de-bloat (the best benefit in my opinion). You can make this pudding the night before, let the chia seeds do all the work and enjoy it the next morning!

Three Ingredient Chia Seed Pudding
fills 2 small mason jars
1 (13.5oz) can coconut milk*
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
*You can also substitute it with almond milk and then mix in a little plain yogurt to thicken it
Mix them all together and pour into mason jars or an airtight container. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight and enjoy it the next day topped with any fruit or nuts preferred. I topped mine with dried coconut, blackberries, and goji berries. What would you top your pudding with?
*You can substitute coconut milk with almond milk and then mix in a little plain yogurt to thicken it if you don’t have coconut milk.
