Delicious & Healthy Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

I’m officially late jumping on the chia seed bandwagon. I’ll admit it! I had no idea what all the fuss was about. Every time I heard the word “chia” I instantly thought of the Chia Pet commercials and the jingle that went along with it. Cha-cha-cha-chia!

Little did I know that those tiny seeds are packed full of the following benefits:

  • loaded with antioxidants
  • fibre rich
  • calorie-for-calorie one of the best sources of nutrients
  • naturally gluten free
  • high in Omega-3 fatty acids

Since completing the Whole30 program, I’m constantly looking for healthy substitutes that satisfy my sweet tooth, without going too far off the rails. After a nutritionist suggested I try chia seeds, I hit up Google and found this great chocolate pudding recipe. Healthy and delicious? Yes, please!
