There are endless flavor variations. You can omit the cocoa powder and vanilla and add a cup of strawberries for a strawberry version, or add cinnamon and nutmeg for a Chai Chia Pudding.
Chia seed pudding
- 2 cups of unsweetened organic soy milk (or skim milk)
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 2-3 tablespoons cocoa powder (or to taste(optional))
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (or to taste)
- Stevia (to taste)
- Put in a blender and blend until smooth. Will thicken in about 10 minutes in the fridge. The longer you leave it in the fridge, the more it will thicken.
*Replace natural sugar with stevia to assist with weight loss
Other ways to use chia:
-sprinkled on yogurt
-as the “breading” for fish
-mixed in with oatmeal
-to thicken soups
-tossed in a salad for an extra crunch
