Layered Chia Pudding with Maple Glazed Walnuts

When it comes to chia pudding, it is so versatile. In this chia pudding, I used grapefruit, yogurt, grapes and honeydew melon keeping the pudding cool and refreshing. The maple glazed walnuts add a nice crunchy texture to the lightly sweetened pudding. If you feel creative choose your layers and toppings, it is so much fun. Kids especially love to create their pudding by adding bananas, raisins, chocolate chips, peanut butter or ice cream
