Chia pudding is an easy "feel good" treat that anyone can prepare. Chia seeds can absorb liquid up to ten times their size which works wonderfully as a natural thickener. The seeds are combined with coconut milk and topped with fresh winter fruits. If you are feeling indulgent, add a few shards of chopped chocolate.
