You got us—we're chia pudding maniacs! We can't help it; the mixture is sweet and creamy, yet packed with nutrients. Why would we ever need anything else for breakfast (or dessert, for that matter)?
We like this version topped with mini chocolate chips and shredded coconut... but you should experiment with any nuts, seeds, or fresh fruit you like.
