Berry Almond Chia Pudding
Chia pudding is a great alternative to tapioca pudding or rice pudding. It is much lower on the glycemic scale, it contains a lot more protein, and it is quick and easy to make! Also, it is perfect for serving during the summer when you do not want to cook because it requires no cooking. The recipe I am sharing with you today uses an almond milk base (whisking almond butter into water is a quick way to create almond milk) to make it extra creamy and give it more protein. The chia seeds contain heart healthy omega 3 oils, so you are getting a daily dose of healthy fats. Also, I include berries in this for antioxidants, and of course they are perfect paired with the sweet almond pudding. Why not eat your dessert and get healthy too!

Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl except the berries, and let sit for 15 minutes. Once the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid, stir in the berries, and serve!
