    Guava Chia Pudding

    Hola My Darlings!   I’ve taken a traditional vegan recipe and added a little Cuban flavor into the mix. Because who says Cubans can’t be Vegan, am I right? Anywho, I’m not vegan but I enjoy this recipe and I’m sure you will too! For those of you that are not familiar with chia seeds, they are full of health benefits 🙂 ! So, having a tasty breakfast/snack doesn’t have to make you feel guilty. Hope you enjoy my Chia Pudding twist 🙂 !!

Of course, I was a chubby little girl eager to be her taste tester. My grandmother would spend hours working her magic in what I always believed was her favorite room in her house. Honestly, till this day I have not found Cuban food as good as hers. I wish I had her longer so that she could teach me her ways. Although she is not with us today, I honor her memory with my love for…
