Chia seeds are a power food and rich of omega 3 fat acids and proteins. You can use them in smoothie bowls and drinks. If you combine them in liquid they swell and become a sort of gel texture. That is how you can make the pudding. You can vary a lot with this chia pudding and it is a good basis for tasty creatures in the kitchen! You can combine the pudding including banana or leave them out of the pudding, several options. And of course you can combine the chia pudding with several fruits of the season. I loved the homemade granola on this breakfast dish. You can make the granola and save for a longer period. Check this Chia Strawberry Pudding breakfast in this blog, but also my healthy delicious recipes in my other blogs.
