Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

Don’t let the name fool you. I’m actually eating this for breakfast today, so it’s not necessarily a pudding dessert. (These are dessert!) But it’s sweet and delicious and super good for you, so today, it’s breakfast. 🙂 It needs a little bit of time to set, but other than that, this is pretty simple. Throw stuff in a blender, pour it into a bowl, add chia seeds and blueberries, and enjoy!

Chia seeds are great fiber and protein among other things, so it’s a great way to start your day. You could make this the night before and let it sit in your fridge, too. And it’s very versatile. Feel free to add other mix-ins. Or leave the blueberries completely.  Though any other berry or fruit (I’m thinking mango, peach, pineapple…) would be great with this. Truly, the options are endless!
