There is nothing better than a bowl of thick, rich, silky chocolate pudding. It is an absolute favorite dessert of our Mom. She often tells us of the homemade puddings her mother would make for the family and how she would beat the mixture until thick and shiny over and over and all by hand!
But what if we could enjoy the same rich flavor and texture without the all the fat from the cream and sugar? What if we told you it was chia seeds? What the heck is a chia seed?? It is a tiny black seed the size of a poppy seed but when combined with a liquid the chia seed triples in size and become gelatinous almost like a tapioca.
