I’ll be the first to admit that green chia pudding swirled with honey yogurt is not the most beautiful thing, but, looks can be deceiving. This packed with healthy stuff chia pudding concoction is delish. To make green chia pudding, you basically start with a green smoothie, stir in some chia seeds, and voilá: crazy green pudding. The pudding is great by itself, but you could make it more substantial by stirring in some fresh tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, maybe a little shredded coconut). For the kiddos’ lunches today, I added in some lightly sweetened yogurt for an extra little somethin’ somethin’.

  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 very ripe banana

Combine all ingredients except chia seeds in a blender. Stir in the chia seeds and let them work their magic for several hours, or overnight, in the fridge. This pudding makes a great mid-morning snack. It’s sweet, packed with vitamins, and full of the magical hydrating power of chia seeds.
