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.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions:

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.
