About This Recipe

Adaptable and delicious, chia seed pudding is wildly popular for good reason. The seeds offer antioxidants, protein, and fiber. Almost all the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber, not starches or sugars, making them a great addition to a low-carbohydrate kitchen. When chia seeds are combined with liquid, they become gelatinous, with a pudding-like consistency that readily absorbs flavorings.
