Tropical Chia Pudding

Have you had chia seeds before? They are sometimes called "super food" because they are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats and may have some health benefits.

They can be brown, black, or white and have a nutty flavor. Including chia seeds to your diet is easy- just sprinkle them on yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, soups, salads, pancakes, etc. They go well with pretty much anything! Our Tropical Chia Pudding is also a delicious way to enjoy this super food!
