Layered Chocolate and Strawberry Chia Pudding

May 11, 2014

Author Notes: This gorgeous layered chocolate and strawberry chia pudding is incredibly simple to make. Chia seeds are high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids which are both great for your heart. Make this pudding as a pretty brunch dish or add a little more sweetener to make it a dessert. Deborah Davis

You add the chia seeds in the first step. It's ok that they get pureed, they still create a gel when left in the fridge. I've edited the recipe instructions above - thanks for pointing it out!

At what point do you add the chia seeds? At the first step? They don't break apart in the blender?
