Chia seeds are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and when paired with fresh fruit are a great (and delicious!) way to start your morning.
Of all the non-dairy milks, almond milk has the thickest consistency and will make the thickest mixture when combined with the chia seeds. If you choose to use rice or coconut milk, add a bit more chia seeds (after it initially sets) until you get the thickness you want.
