LISA’S TIPS

  1. If you notice your chia seeds aren’t starting to gel and thicken after 10 minutes, you may have dud chia seeds. This can happen in they’ve been sitting in your pantry a while. Just grab a new bag of chia seeds. 
  2. If you want that frosted look on your berries, here’s how you do it. In a single layer on a plate, freeze fresh berries that have been washed and are completely dry. Once they’re frozen, add them to the chocolate chia pudding. About 2-3 minutes later (as they come to room temperature) they’ll have that frosted look. But serve them up quick because it doesn’t last long!
