Over the past year I’ve had chia seed pudding a handful of times at friends houses and out for breakfast, but never had the courage to try making it on my own. It’s just one of the recipes I thought would be a little too difficult for me to figure out. It just so happens I was incredibly wrong. Amanda – like every recipe she creates – makes it seem effortless and simple. Plus, she makes it the night before so that in the morning it’s ready to go for those of you running out the door or have kids swirling around you. This is my new morning treat, especially with berries coming back at the farmers market. Enjoy!
