  • Chia seeds come from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds contains 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, 2282 mg of Omega 3 and 752 mg of Omega 6 fatty acids (This makes them a really great source of both fiber and Omegas)
  • A significant concentration of fiber combined with their ability to absorb 10 times their weight in water also makes chia seeds excellent for maintaining regularity and also contributing to satiety
  • Contain iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc
  • Emerging research suggests that including chia seeds as part of a healthy diet may help improve cardiovascular risk factors such as lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure

It’s much easier than tapioca though- all you do is combine your chia seeds with some milk and a sweetener like honey.  We used the carton of coconut milk today- but almond milk and regular milk also work!

Then, you let the chia seeds do their job.  They absorb the liquid from the milk and thicken up to a pudding like texture.

We included strawberries in one bowl, cocoa powder with coconut and almond in another, and blueberries in a third.

I make this also and it is quick, easy and delicious. I also like to add old fashion oats, vanilla and maple syrup are some options to try.

I don’t like things too chocolatey, so I might not be the best resource for that. But, I added about 1/2 tabelspoon. 1 might be perfect.

i saw many recipes that need greek yogurt and yours not…

Hi Jenna, sorry for the confusion! Yes, it should say 1/3 cup. We had some glitches to our recipes following a big update to our site last weekend. The amounts should look normal to you now. Thanks for your patience!
