Chia Pudding Dessert Shooters

Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry Chia Seed Puding Shooters - ButterYum

I couldn't decide which flavor of chia pudding to share with you first, so what the heck, I'll share all three.  Gives me a good excuse to use these adorable little Bormioli shot glasses too.  No spoons needed, just tilt your head back and enjoy.

Now for some interesting facts about chia seeds.  Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain superfood that can be eaten raw or in gel form (they absorb liquid, up to 10 times their weight).  They're chock full of healthy omega fats, protein, antioxidants, calcium, and dietary fiber.

Bonus - chia seed gel can be used as an egg substitute when baking:  for every egg called for in a recipe, mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and allow to gel.
