I have loved chia puddings since a trip to Kauai YEARS ago. I had seen some recipes pop up online and had heard about it but never tried it until we went to this farm fresh restaurant & I knew exactly what it was and had to try it. Since then I’ve made many variations at home for the whole family. If you’ve never tried it – it’s sort of like a tapioca texture but you can mix a lot of things in, use different milks and change it up quite a bit depending on how you make it! This one uses fresh raspberries and blueberries along with your favorite vanilla yogurt.
How to Make Raspberry Blueberry Chia Pudding
This pudding will need to be made ahead of time, but once it’s ready you can just grab and go or serve to guests. It’s such a pretty dish you’ll want to use glass jars if possible!

I buy my chia seeds at Costco but you can get them at most grocery stores on even online if you’ve never bought them before.
This pudding is great anytime you can get your hands on fresh berries but also makes a festive patriotic side dish, breakfast or dessert. You can definitely try mixing it up with your other favorite fruits as well.
