I've been hearing about chia seeds for a while now... when a friend's blog mentioned them, I jokingly said, "What, like the seeds you put on a Chia Pet?" Was I ever surprised to find out, yes, the one and the same!
Then, I was perusing another pal's blog, and found this genius recipe for what can best be described as a healthy tapioca, or, as I like to call it: Chia Pudding!
I made this last night for the first time and I loved it! It was perfectly sweet with just the coconut milk and a banana, but of course I needed to dress it up with a little non dairy whipped topping!I never, ever would have picked these up off the store shelf if it hadn't been for the cool people I "know" via the internet. I'm excited to try some other recipes with chia seeds. They're a great source of fiber and Omega-3's.
