Chia Pudding Fun

I had a taste for some Chia pudding today.  I love the way chia seeds swell while absorbing so much moisture, adding a tapioca like texture to anything you add them to. They plump, they thicken and they add protein!  Each tablespoon contains approximately three grams of protein.

I assigned my Saturday this week to doing whatever I wanted to do and today I wanted to play in the kitchen.  So, that's what I did.  I started with a Chia Peach Pudding and then decided I wanted to try one with some crunchy and chewy ingredients mixed.  This became my Chia Pecan and Fruit Pudding.  Below is the result of both.  I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I had them both!  And why not?  They are healthy, low in calories if that is what you like to watch, and they tasted great!

I hope you'll give them a try, the recipe links are highlighted above and may also be found under the 'Recipes' link on this web page.  Have some fun with them, mix it up to satisfy your preferences and bump up (or down) the ingredients quantities to suit your tastes and needs!  ENJOY!!
