This recipe is packed with vitamins, proteins and a punch of flavors! so good! You can prepare this overnight and eat it for breakfast, evening snack or dessert. The flavors of this recipe are similar to a pumpkin pie with a healthy added ingredient; chia seeds. I usually add chia seeds to my smoothies or when eating a yogurt. I buy them in bulk and this is my favorite brand. Chia seeds are full of nutrients that provide many benefits to the body and brain. They contain protein, fiber, healthy omega-3s, vitamins B1, B2, B3 and many antioxidants! All this converted into a delicious thick and creamy pudding that taste like pumpkin pie!
