Coconut-Cranberry Chia Pudding

I adapted a chia pudding recipe from Natural Health Magazine to make it more palatable to kids, thinking this would be a great substitute to store bought puddings. Much to my surprise this tastes and has a texture more similar to rice pudding. Both my daughters gobbled it up! Steeped in calcium-rich milk and blood regulating cinnamon, and studded with sweet cranberries and healthy fat from the shredded coconut, the high protein, and high fiber, omega-3 rich chia seeds are in good company creating a healthy grab-and-go breakfast, snack or sleep-inducing nibble.

Strawberry-Chia Seed Jam

I adapted my daughter’s blueberry-chia seed jam recipe for this spring fruit favorite with great success. With just a hint of sweetness via some honey, the burst of ripe strawberries really shines through. This is what you want to make with all those strawberries you picked fresh or scored at your local farmer’s market.
