Overnight Chia with Berries

mason jar of overnight chia with berries and a spoon

Summer is a time for the beach, barbecues and fun in the sun. However this year with COVID-19 and mandated social distancing, the 4th of July may feel a little different. We want to help everyone feel a little more festive — and that starts with breakfast. Get into the red, white and blue spirit with this make-ahead overnight chia pudding.

Full of antioxidants, filling, and packed with nutrients with healthy body benefits — it will quickly become a family favorite all Summer long. 

Plus, if you are hosting a party this summer, you can put the pudding in cute mason jars for easy, social distance sharing.
