white chia pudding // cacao nibs + macadamia

white chia pudding // cacao nibs + macadamia
Chia pudding - you either love it or hate it. The texture can be off putting to some, it took a long time for me to welcome re-hydrated chia seeds with open arms. They totally weirded me out, truth is stayed away from them before I even tasted them - no thank you. That was up until a few months ago when I started to add them to my overnight oats - it was truly love at first bite. I never looked back.

When I started looking at products for my monthly NOWFoods Shipment I cam across White Chia Seeds - they looked so pretty I couldn't pass them up. There is very little difference between a black + white Chia seed // they are virtually equal in all health benefits chia is known for - looking for more? check this article out.

The key to this chia pudding are the add ins- macadamia nuts ( you can use any nut on hand), cacao nibs, shredded coconut, dates, cinnamon and maple syrup. 

Breakfast or dessert worthy ingredients.
