chia seed breakfast pudding

06Jul14

I recently had chia seed pudding at a terrific restaurant in San Francisco and was totally smitten. I love the stuff! It is healthy and light, but filling and satisfying. It is amazing to see the story of the chia seed in the United States: it evolved from a gag gift to a highly trendy superfood. Though I tend to dislike trends, I am fully on board with chia seed pudding!

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
