Chia Seed Pudding?

I bought chia seeds the other day.  I don't know if you've ever seen a chia seed before but they are tiny.  A little research showed that these seeds contain tons of nutrition.  Omega 3 fatty acids are just one of the health benefits.  Some call chia a superfood.  I found that chia seeds are incorporated into food as a thickener in dips, puddings, tossed in to smoothies, etc.  There are many recipes on the net for pudding.  Today I'm going to share a Mock Tapioca Pudding.

Mock Tapioca Pudding

1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1 tsp. vanilla
10 or so drops of stevia
1/4 cup of chia seeds

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Stir mixture.  Place in fridge for at least one hour.  It doesn't get much easier!
