Summary
This pudding is decadent enough to be a fancy dessert for two, or light enough for breakfast or a midday snack. Chia seeds are a diabetes superfood. They are high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids—great for blood sugar management and heart health. When combined with liquid, they form a gel creating a pudding-like texture. To make this vegan, use a non-dairy milk like almond or soy.
