We already saw that they can be taken directly but knowing how to prepare the seeds is a good idea to take advantage of its gelatinous texture. This chocolate and yogurt pudding with yogurt is ideal for breakfast and brings a lot of energy.

It can also be taken throughout the morning or as a snack in the afternoon, especially if we have a hard day of great activity.

Incorporate the sugar or sweetener now if desired and stir. Wait 10 minutes, mix again and cover with plastic film. Leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
Drain the yogurt liquid and beat with sugar or honey until it leaves a creamy texture. Wash the fruit we are going to use. Form the pudding by dividing the chia seed mixture into two parts, covering the bottom of a jar, glass or small cup in half.
