Cherish Nourishment - Chia Pudding

Chia is an incredibly nutritious seed and is probably going to make its way into most of my recipes! 

This tiny seed certainly packs a punch. And even better, it is usually organic and sustainable!

I call this a pudding, but feel free to eat for breakfast, snack or after dinner treat.
