Try a new spin on the produce pick of the season! Watermelon is already delicious all on its own. However, when you blend it up with creamy yogurt, tart lemon juice, nutritious chia seeds and a little stevia, this H2O-filled fruit becomes a sweet and satisfying snack that doubles as dessert. Learn how to make chia seed pudding with our healthy watermelon recipe that’s perfect for summer!

Fresh, filling and filled with flavor, you’ll love this simple summer-inspired chia pudding. Not only is it delicious but it’s also easy to make! All you have to do is grab a blender or food processor and combine watermelon, yogurt, lemon and stevia. Stir in the chia seeds, then place the pudding in the refrigerator overnight. This will allow the chia seeds time to absorb the moisture and create a pudding-like texture.
