Chia seeds are a powder house of fibre, calcium, protein, healthy fats, antioxidants, etc. Easy and delicious desserts can be made with it without much effort. You need to just combine it with milk and top it with your favourite fruits and nuts.
For a healthier version just add some honey and rose / kewra water for the flavour. You have an absolutely yummy dessert in no time. It can be had as breakfast or as an after-meal dessert.
