Breakfast – what is supposed to be the most wholesome and nutritious meal of the day is sadly too often overlooked or rushed with high-sugar cereals, toaster pop-tarts, and whatever else you can cook and consume in two seconds. Worry not, mornings can be transformed with this light, healthy, and energizing meal! Not only is chia seed pudding delicious, it can also be prepared the night before school or work and is easily made to-go. Chia seeds contain abundant amounts of fiber and antioxidants, are gluten-free, and can greatly improve blood sugar regulation. Since the recipe is an overnight recipe, the final product is luxuriously gelatinous and smooth to texture, leaving you satisfied with every bite.

There are numerous flavors and combinations that can be chosen with preference when making chia pudding but here is the recipe for one specific flavor type.
