Vanilla Chia Pudding with Cherries & Almonds

Did you know that chia seeds are one of the healthiest foods on the planet? Neither did I, and I had been a huge skeptic because I wasn’t sure I could handle the texture. After looking at several recipes, I decided to give them a try.  I knew that anything soaked overnight in almond or coconut milk had to be amazing!

This recipe has become my go to and is extremely versatile.  I love to top mine with lots of nuts and berries to give it more of a crunchy consistency and it is incredibly delicious!

Are you still wondering what makes these tiny seeds so healthy? They are are packed with protein, fiber and Omega-3’s, making this pudding a power-packed snack or breakfast.  So go ahead, give it a try!
