The unique hydrating properties of the chia seeds make them perfect for the summer months, add a spoonful to your breakfast cereal, your dessert or your smoothie throughout the day. Use them whole or ground depending on your texture preference.
In this recipe I used raspberries but you could swap in other berries if you like, i just particularly liked the red against the yellow. Kiwi slices, or blueberries could work well too.
