Fruity Chia Pudding

Chia puddings for breakfast anyone?  If I have a hectic week ahead, pre-made chia puddings or smoothies are my go-to brekky of choice.  Prep them with your favourite fruits on Sunday and you are good to go for the week!

Why chia? The little seeds are high protein, contain a decent dose of omega-3 fats, lots of antioxidants and more calcium than milk. What a powerhouse of combined nutrients!
