Today I made a new recipe with the Star ingredient being Chia Seeds. Chia seeds are little seeds, usually eaten by 1 or 2 Tbsp at a sitting that add mostly fiber and omega-3, along with a little protein and iron. Try adding them in yogurt and smoothies, or sprinkle on top of cereal or a salad.
I was looking for a new way to eat them and I came across a recipe for chia seed pudding. I figured the consistency would come out well because Chia seeds turn to gel when soaked in water. There are only a few ingredients:
Very easy. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1.5 Tbsp sugar; 2 Tbsp maple syrup, 1/2 juice from a large lemon, 7oz Almond milk, 1/4 cup chia seeds. Blend together all ingredients except chia. Whisk in the chia seeds and let sit for 30 mins until it gelatinizes. Keep refrigerated. Top each portion with lemon zest and serve. This is a sweet treat to eat as dessert 🙂 Enjoy
