Remember Chia pets? Those hilarious glass animals that grew grass hair when watered?
Well you know those same seeds inside those toys, chia seeds, are actually edible, high in omega 3 fatty acids, and high in protein.
- 6 oz Almond Milk (or other non dairy milk of choice)
- 2 Tbl Chia Seeds
- 1 cup frozen blueberries (or frozen fruit of choice)
- 1/2 tbl maple syrup, yacon, lacuma powder or sweetener of choice
- 2 Tbl Coconut Milk (or other non dairy milk of choice)
In a container that has a lid, stir together the 6 oz of non-dairy milk and the chia seeds, and allow to bloom in the fridge covered overnight or on the counter for at least 2 hours.
Place the bloomed chia seeds (they should be doubled in size and look gelatinous) and milk into a blender along with the blueberries, stevia or sweetener, and 2 Tbl coconut milk.
Blend until a smooth and thick pudding is achieved.
Eat immediately or store in the fridge covered until ready to eat.
