Mint Chocolate Chip Chia Recipe
Chia pudding is an easy make-ahead breakfast staple. It’s nutritious, delicious and versatile, and can literally be thrown together in just minutes the night before.
Chia seeds have a mild nutty taste and are extremely nutrient-dense. They are rich in fiber, minerals, antioxidants, protein, and healthy fats. A 2 Tbsp serving contains 4 grams of protein and 12 grams of carbohydrate, of which 11 grams are fiber!
