Blueberry season is here! We’re celebrating in stores with our housemade blueberry basil lemonade, but wanted to give you a way to enjoy this summer fruit at home. For this recipe, we combined blueberries with chia seeds (talk about a nutrition power couple!) to make a healthy pudding that’s filled with omega-3’s, fiber and antioxidants. Happy snacking!
1 cup fresh blueberries, plus additional for garnishing
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp agave or maple syrup
3 tbsp chia seeds
Add blueberries and almond milk into blender and mix
Pour liquid into bowl and combine with vanilla extract and agave
Stir in chia seeds gently
Place mixture into serving cups or mason jars
Cover and let sit for at least 5 hours in refrigerator (ideally overnight)
Serve topped with fresh blueberries

"One fun fact I learned while on the air with Keith Olbermann was that humans on the Internet are scumbags. People say children are cruel, but I was never made fun of as a child or an adult. Suddenly, my disability on the world wide web is fair game. I would look at clips online and see comments like, "Yo, why’s she tweakin?" "Yo, is she retarded?" And my favorite, "Poor Gumby-mouth terrorist. What does she suffer from? We should really pray for her." One commenter even suggested that I add my disability to my credits: screenwriter, comedian, palsy."
