Now that summer is here, I have been craving simple, healthy, and cold desserts. Chia seed pudding perfectly fits all of these categories. Chia seeds are a super food grown in Mexico and are linked back to the days of the Mayans and Aztecs. They became popular in our culture in the 90s with Chia Pets. Yes, chia seeds are the same thing we slathered on ceramic shapes, mocking various animals and people. Now in the 21st century, we eat them in pudding. Needless to say, things have changed.
