Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and healthy fat – a vegetarian, nutritional powerhouse.
Black and white chia seeds have a similar nutrition profile, but I prefer white chia seeds for their mild taste.
No blackberries? No problem. Substitute mixed berries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or cherries. This easy recipe calls for fresh berries and can be enjoyed year-round using frozen berries.

2 pints Organic blackberries or 12oz bag Organic frozen blackberries

2. Mash and cook for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat, add chia seeds and stir to combine.
