It started with seeing this Pin a while back…and then again and again until I finally took notice.

Chia Seed Pudding. Every recipe I read said it was similar to tapioca. I decided to base mine off this recipe by An Edible Mosaic. Mine was good, but did not look as pretty as her serving does!
I used almond milk and some agave along with the cinnamon and vanilla. I made it last night and only had time for it to set up for 2 hours. It was a bit loose but still really yummy. I made another batch this morning and am eager to see what it is like after chilling all day.
Why Chia Seeds? They are a good source of fiber, Omega 3 Fatty acid and protein. They are one of these fad super foods that seem to get everyone’s attention. A fad maybe, but an ancient seed that was a staple for the Aztecs. I also know you can add these things to smoothies as well as leave them dry and crunchy and toss them on salads. Think of them like a poppy seed in texture in the dry form, and when plumped with liquid they are much like a tapioca pearl.
And yes, the Chia pet jingle in stuck in my head too…..
