Who knew these small little seeds had so much good stuff packed inside of them! Although, I just named all of the great health benefits of these chia seeds I didn’t even get to the best part of the recipe, which is how EASY it is to make.
To make the chia seed pudding you will combine the chia seeds, agave syrup, vanilla, coconut milk and stir. In a separate bowl use a fork to smash the blueberries making a blueberry puree. Combine the blueberry puree with the chia seed pudding, mix, cover, and let it sit for 6 or more hours so it can thicken.
After the 6 hours take the chia seed pudding out of the bowl and divide into small jars. Top with blueberries, blackberries and yogurt and serve. Chia seed pudding also taste wonderful when topped with homemade granola and coconut flakes.
