A Dose of Health for Breakfast, Tasty Chia Pudding

Did you know that Chia contains 5 times more calcium than milk, 7 times more vitamin C than oranges, 3 times more Iron than spinach, twice the potassium content of banana and 8 times more Omega 3 than salmon.

Chia seeds, nutritionally thick seeds, will thicken any liquid that is added to them. If you mix them up with coconut and almond milks, you’ve got an instant pudding with mild sweetened flavor.
