If there's anything I love more than indulging my sweet tooth, it's indulging it with a healthy, natural, no-sugar-added dessert. That's right! I just said healthy and dessert in the same sentence. Chia pudding has become one of my favorite desserts.  And this version — naturally sweetened with fresh pineapple and mango — is perfect for satisfying all of my sweet cravings!
