I originally made this recipe as a healthy make ahead Valentine’s Day breakfast but really its great anytime! Chia seed puddings are simple and perfect as a light snack or breakfast when you want something a little sweeter and and you’re not in the mood for eggs. I also love having it on hand since my picky three year old will gladly eat up!
