ELDERBERRY CHIA PUDDING

I absolutely love chia pudding.  It’s nutritious and delicious and can literally be thrown together in just minutes the night before for a quick and easy breakfast, snack, lunch, or dessert.

Not only does this elderberry version look pretty, but it tastes great and is packed with antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, protein, and pre & probiotics, too!  It’s also suitable for gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, and keto diets.
