vanilla chia pudding

This raw pudding is similar to tapioca pudding. Chia seeds contain powerful nutrition. They are an excellent supply of calcium and have the ability to increase brain power and body strength. Since the seeds absorb so much liquid they help your body remain hydrated for longer. They also regenerate healthy body tissue and have cleansing fiber action. Quite the refreshing dessert or morning breakfast.
