Allow me to tell you a story about the day I ate my words (in addition to this chia pudding…).

Last week I was on vacation with my C and my parents in Arizona. My parents were wondering who in the hell I was talking to while taking video of myself on my iPhone. “Why of course, it’s my snapchat friends!” At this point, C is used to the insane amount of selfies (and pictures of Rhett) that I take for snapchat, but my parents were a bit thrown off.

This called for a Snapchat tutorial…

Make with a triple berry punch, this healthy snack or breakfast recipe is full of protein and fiber to keep you full for hours.Now for most of my life I have given my Mom a lot of flack for her less than stellar track record with technology. My Dad was always the tech wiz and seeing as I was basically born into a computer, technology has been pretty intuitive for me since 1989. I mean I run a blog for god’s sake…

But Snapchat is another ball-game of technology. Trying to explain why a video or picture that lasts 10 seconds and only lives on for 24 hours is valuable is kind of a tricky conversation to have.

In hindsight, it was a walk in the park compared to when they asked for a step-by-step tutorial of how to use Snapchat.

C was courageous and went Team Mom.

Well, it turns out I was very very wrong.

Either C is an incredible teacher, or I’ve been underestimating my Mom’s technology skills my entire life.

As I type this I have received THREE snaps from my mother. The selection has included selfies, photos of my Dad passed out, text on photos and even improvised drawing. We’re not quite ready for face swapping but the variety has been quite impressive.

Meanwhile, I’ve received NOT A THING from my Dad. My protege failed me and the underdog won this one.

So Mom, I’m totally eating this chia pudding but also my words, because you’ve blown all of my expectations out of the water. Expect an apologetic Snapchat from me ASAP.

Notes

*if using fresh blueberries, I find you get more blueberry flavor if you mash them up a bit. This is not the case with frozen.

    Hi Davida, Happy Easter! Nope, my parents are not fan of and active on social media, they don’t have IG, Pinterest, Twitter or Snapchat accounts. My dad is on FB but he doesn’t use it. Personally I’m happy that they got on board with smartphones and are using What’s App, Viber and sending photos well. So hats off to your Mom! I’m really curious and a bit fearful about thinking how we would compare to our parents vs, technology when we are that age since technology is developing at such a fast pace.

    I’m not on Snapchat, that is a social media I haven’t joined yet, the others keep me more than busy for the time being, I try to catch up first.

    This Very Berry Chia Pudding looks delish, I just made a simply blueberry one this weekend, and we loved it 🙂

      haha I hear ya! It’s all moving so quickly, sometimes I even feel like I can’t keep up! My current favorite is definitely snapchat. With social media feeling so curated, it’s the only one that really feels like it’s happening “in real time”!

    I’ve never made a berry chia pudding before! Sounds incredible.

    And good job Mom! Parents and technology are fun 😉

    Heard a lot of good stuff about chia seeds, have never tried them. They also seem crazy expensive, where I live. What do they taste like?

      honestly, they don’t have much taste. They take on the taste of whatever flavour you add. They’re nutrition powerhouses so worth the investment for me!

    Hahaha, the things that parents use technology for actually crack me up. My mom asked me to make her an Instagram JUST so she can see my food pictures – I’m literally the one one she follows.

    Hey Davida, go mom! I’m happy my mom has picked up texting…it took a very long time. SnapChatting is Way out of her league. I think our teenaged daughters are slightly horrified that I’m on SnapChat although all their friends are following OvenHug and that’s pretty cute 🙂 I cannot get over the colors of this chia pudding! Either you have a fantastic filter or this thing is amazing! Probably both. thanks for sharing, we’ll try it!

    Love this! Did you cut, dice, mash or blend all the berries? That color is lovely!

      Just mixed! It takes on the bright blue color if you use frozen blueberries or mash fresh blueberries 🙂

    Please help! I wanna jump on the chia band wagon.. But I don’t have a mason jar.. Is it just for looks? Can I cover the bowl with plastic wrap!? Anxiously awaiting your wisdom. S

    Thank you for this fabulous recipe! I made this after Tasty Yummies reposted your recipe on her FB page and I am super glad I did. We’ve now made this three times in the past week and my daughter requested it for her birthday breakfast. It’s super easy to throw together at night and great to wake up, knowing there is a tasty breakfast all ready to go in the fridge. I am looking forward to exploring your blog!

    So, I’m unfortunately allergic to strawberries (breaks my heart!), but am I correct in assuming that I could just up the other two kinds of berries to 3/4 cup each and still end up with something delicious? Or is there another fruit you would recommend as a sub?

    If using frozen berries, do you need to thaw them first?

    I was so excited to try this but I waited too long and didn’t have berries. I tried this with about a cup of diced fresh peach instead and added a dash of cinnamon. It was wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
