With this quick and easy recipe even a small child can help shake up a few healthy ingredients placed into a zip-top plastic bag into one scrumptious treat. Plus, with one tablespoon of chia seeds providing more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries, this pudding will surly become the staple food in your home just like chia seeds once had been in the diets of ancient Aztecs and Mayans. Please try this super delight. You and your family will not be disappointed.
