Chocolate Chia Pudding

 

Chia seed pudding is easy to make and is great for a quick breakfast or snack. Chia seeds are full of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and high-quality protein. Eating them in a pudding is a fun way to add them to your diet. In this recipe, I add raw cacao, which gives the pudding a chocolate flavor and is loaded with antioxidants. I like to use real maple syrup for the sweetener, but you can substitute the syrup with honey or the sweetener of your choice.
