Mmmmm chia seeds. I love their little strawberry seedness, satisfying crunch, gel-shell after soaking... the interest they add to otherwise smooth foods and drinks.
This is a tasty, simple Chia Pudding dish I've made a few times:
-berries (this time I just used late season strawberries from my local farmers market, but raspberries, blueberries and blackberries work fine)
-plain greek yogurt
Blend the berries with the yogurt with a blender. I didn't need to add any liquid, but you might want to add some water. Once it was a desirable consistency, stir in chia seeds to personal preference. Remember they will soak up liquid.
Put the mixture in the fridge at least for an hour, but preferably overnight. Serve in bowl and top with cacao nibs! Yum!
