This Orange Creamsicle Chia Pudding is a great way to start your day. It's not only easy but healthy as well. Chia seeds are highly nutritious. They are high in fiber, protein, and omega-3s.

Chia pudding is the perfect vegan snack for road trips and traveling. You can travel with chia seeds on a plane and buy almond milk when you get to your destination. You can also travel with shelf-stable almond milk.
