Coconut Chia Pudding

Chia 2 photoNeed a little breakfast inspiration? Throw together some chia seeds and coconut milk. Add a swirl of honey and voilà— you have a great start to the day.  These magic little seeds are nutritional superstars loaded with omega 3’s and protein that make this creamy pudding ideal as a pre or post workout snack.  A crown of summer berries or any other seasonal fruit is delicious on top of this cloud of chia seeds.  I enjoy it as a morning, noon, or evening treat.  And I’m certainly not above mid-morning or mid-afternoon too.
