Chai Chia Berry Pudding Bowl

I love chia for all of the benefits that it offers…fiber, antioxidants and protein to name a few.  I am always looking to create  great new combinations with chia seeds..  Today, it is Chai Chia Berry Pudding.  We already love chai when mixed with tea, so, why not include it in other recipes?  The result is that the pudding is completely smooth, and goes down like silk.
