Chia Seed Pudding

As much as I’m attached to my savory morning meals I’m also okay with dessert for breakfast…especially when it’s chia pudding topped with all of the things like fresh fruit and nut butter! This little bowl comes packed with all the good stuff like calcium, magnesium, iron, fiber, antioxidants, and protein so you can rest assured your sweet treat is really not just empty calories and an inevitable sugar crash.

It’s so easy to prep this pudding days in advance, too, for an easy breakfast or snack on the go. Plus, the topping options are endless so you can add whatever you have on hand! How easy is that?!

This is also a great snack for your little ones- Emerson LOVES it.

And if my delicious looking bowl wasn’t convincing enough see why chia seeds should be your go-to superfood:
