I created this recipe because I’m a huge fan of chia puddings for breakfast! I have it at least a couple of times a week and always include some nuts and fruit for a balanced start to the day. For this recipe, I included dried plums in order to support bone health. This is a great recipe for anyone at an increased risk for osteopenia or osteoporosis.
