This Almond Chia Pudding is sweet and creamy.
I will admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of chia pudding when I first tried it. The consistency took a little getting used to, but after playing around with some flavor combinations, I have fallen in love with chia pudding.
For this chia pudding recipe I blended the ingredients so that it has the consistency of a traditional pudding.
Chia seeds become gelatinous when soaked in water, just like flax seeds. Both seeds make a wonderful binder, so they are often used in place of eggs. I have used both types of seeds in smoothies and crackers.This Almond Chia Pudding is a healthy breakfast or a snack. Make it the night before for a quick breakfast. Click To Tweet
