This is the best Chia Seed Pudding because it is topped with Raspberry Jam!?
I LOVE chia seeds.
I top them on anything I can- yogurt, smoothies, salads.
I add them to water – just straight up add a tbsp of chia seeds to water.
But my favourite way to eat them is in chia seed pudding!
When added to a liquid, chia seeds absorb a lot of liquid and create a thick texture. And adding them to unsweetened coconut milk creates a pudding texture! Since the chia seeds and unsweetened coconut milk are not sweet, I like to combine this chia pudding with sweet raspberry jam. All you need to make this is raspberries and a fork! Mash the raspberries, and voila!
The easiest raspberry jam!
Personally I really like chia seeds because they are filling. I like to eat this recipe as a snack or for breakfast, just depends on the day! See below for more nutrition facts!
