I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about Chia seeds lately and I really didn’t think much of it. That was until my daughter told me about a student in her 4th grade class that made Chia pudding for the class snack, and the kids loved it (they called it fish eye pudding). It caught my attention, and I had to make some.
You may have heard of Chia Seeds before. Remember those terra cotta heads you would rub the seeds onto, water them, and the hair or beard would grow? These are the same seeds except now they are not just for gag gifts. They are supposed to be good for you with lots of Fiber, Omega 3, and Protein.
Chia Seed Pudding Recipe
- 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
Add all the ingredients into a bowl, stir to mix well, pour into serving dishes. Put into the refrigerator to chill for approximately 2 hours.
I even tried some before it got cold and it was pretty good. It tastes kind of like tapioca pudding with a little crunch.
I have friends that add Chia Seeds to yogurt, smoothies, salads, and baked goods to give them an extra nutritional boost.
Have you ever made anything with Chia Seeds? Leave me a comment I would love to hear your thoughts.
P.S. I was not asked to write this post, I just thought the seeds were interesting.
