Blueberry & Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

The champion of all snacks: Chia seed pudding.

Chia seeds were consumed by the Mayans & Aztecs, particularly the warriors. The warriors  thought chia seeds had supernatural powers & credited the seeds for their stamina.

Today, chia seeds are known as superfoods & lately have been receiving a lot of attention.

But back to the blueberry & vanilla pudding; you can make this the night before & have it for breakfast or you can save this for a snack after school/ work.

I added raspberries & chopped Chocodates to my pudding & it was DELICIOUS!
