    I have a texture issue with whole chia that has been soaking for some reason. I usually have to blend it. Think that would work with this, as well!?

      Hi Jennifer, yes blending will work. It will change the texture a bit, however all the amazing health benefits of this recopie will remain.

    The berry lime chia seed pudding sounds like such a welcome and fresh treat during the wintery months. Love how indulgent this is and isn’t 😉

    This sounds so yummy! How long will it last in the refrigerator? I’d like to make enough for the week and just grab a jar each day.

      Mine lasted a week. I made the base with the flavor mix-ins but added the fruit only when I was ready to eat it. Then I didn’t have to worry about the fruit going bad and spoiling the pudding.

    Perfect treat for the kids (and me)! I have to try to mango coconut first…I need a bit of tropical in my life.

      I’m a sucker for tropical, fruity flavors for sure. Especially when its cold and dreary outside.

      That’s pretty much my breakfast as well, although I do love a good SunButter toast now and then.

    I always love a good chia recipe! I actually enjoy “light” and weight loss recipes just because I’m small! People forget that the vertically challenged can’t eat such big portions! I find books like these offer me more options for enjoying multiple mini meals and never feeling completely stuffed. Going to check it out, thanks Nicole!

      Alisa, you are so right! Mini meals work great for me too. I just can’t sit down to a big plate several times a day. Hope you enjoy the cookbook, even if you don’t need the weight loss side of it, it’s loaded with deliciously healthy recipes.
