Breakfast Mug part 2 (Chia Seed edition)

FullSizeRender6

Recently when I had posted about a breakfast mug a lot of you seemed to like it so I was wondering if I could come up with some more. I came across chia seeds recently as I read about them and their amazing health benefits, so I decided to try them myself which also ended up with me coming up with two more ideas for a breakfast mug, but this time with chia seeds. For those who are curious as to how chis seeds taste, they taste very mild, almost no flavor of its own. It usually just takes on the taste of what you tend to soak it in.
