Chia seeds are back! I talk about these a lot and if you haven’t bought them, go buy some this weekend. Just do it.
This Chia seed pudding recipe is simple, healthy and darn delicious. There is no reason you shouldn’t try it out.
I love the texture of the chia gel and pudding. Imagine tapioca pudding but 100 times healthier for you.
Sold yet? If not, check out my Superfood Spotlight on Chia seeds. It’s lengthy, but it provides some great information. They are the ultimate powerhouses.
There is something about that ooey, gooey texture with the seedy crunch. You know the seeds you get to bite when you eat raspberries? I oddly enjoy those seeds, call me weird, but it’s part of why I love that fruit.
These Chia seeds have that same crunch! (hey, it’s the little things in life, right?)
I have been making Chia pudding, oats, gel, yogurt and I am always disappointed at how UGLY they are to the normal person. (I think they look like super cool, but I’m not everyone)
I tried to make these guys look pretty. I learned about ‘food styling’ during the BlogHer conference and have made it a goal to change up my pictures. I hope you guys enjoy!
It seems to work so far, because my mom, who isn’t a huge fan of Chia seeds, said “Oh! That looks yummy!”
Yay! We’re off to a good start. What do you think?
I add these fresh strawberries from the market, aren’t these the prettiest strawberries?
I swear by Driscoll’s berries. I rarely buy any other brand because Driscoll’s strawberries, blueberries, blackberries are so sweet and crispy every. darn. time. Mmmm! I don’t think I have ever been disappointed.
Anyway… give these Chia babies a shot! You can also put them in banana bread!
