Similar to tapioca or rice pudding, chia seed pudding is a thick, creamy mixture that can be sweetened or not and dotted with fresh fruits for an easy-to-tote treat or breakfast. Chia seeds create a gel-like thickness when suspended in liquid. They’re a great way to mimic the texture of grain- or starch-based puddings. If you prefer a smoother pudding, blend the chia seeds with the coconut milk and steeped tea in a high-speed blender or food processor before placing in the refrigerator.
