Exciting news, friends.
I invented a new food yesterday! As you might have noticed, I am a big fan of Sugar-Free Jello. With only 10 calories and zero carbs per serving, it’s my go-to dessert. And yesterday I wondered what would happen if I mixed Jello with chia seeds to make a pudding. And EUREKA! It turned out even better than I expected.
Suddenly, I had a fruity, creamy, low carb dessert with just 2g net carbs per serving.
Now you may be wondering where those carbs come from. They come from the chia seeds, and the almond milk and heavy whipping cream that I used for the liquid in the recipe. But the net carbs from the chia seeds are negligible because the seeds are mostly fiber. And almond milk and cream are very low in carbs. All in all, I think this chia seed pudding is a great addition to the pantheon of Jello desserts.
So look out world! Here comes a brand new dessert.

To make a layered pudding dessert, mix together the almond milk and cream and then split it equally between 2 small bowls.
