chia seed pudding

Is there anything chia seeds can’t do?! Besides growing an awesome pet (did you know that there’s now a Chia Obama?), I knew they could be used to substitute for eggs or oil in your cookies and muffins and whatnot, but they can also be used to make a raw pudding! I think this could be especially useful if you want to make pudding in the summer and don’t want to be hovering over a hot stove. Also, chia seeds are quite nutritious: they contain a lot of protein, soluble dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. Here’s how I made my yummy chia seed pudding, but there are unlimited flavor options!

  • 7/8 cup soymilk
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

Place ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Stir some more every few minutes, then refrigerate. After about 30 minutes, the chia seeds should have become gelatinous and the mixture should therefore be pudding-ish consistency. Stir in more chia seeds if you want a firmer pudding. This recipe makes about 2 servings.

  1. Awesome I want to try this! Where do you buy chia seeds? I mean other than harvesting them off my chiaobama. Obviously.

  2. i buy chia seeds at a bulk foods store here. i’d guess that they are sold in most bulk or natural foods stores, or you could buy them online if that doesn’t work out.
