Almond Banana Chia Pudding

We love chia seeds, as they are so versatile and packed full of quality nutrition. Even better, due to the high fibre and high protein content, they're great to combat cravings, and they help you feel fuller for longer. Try this yummy pudding for breakfast or anytime you need a healthy protein pick me up.
