Part of me wanted to spit the gelatinous mouthful out (gelatinous is not always a fantastic adjective when it comes to describing food), but another part actually… liked it.
The chia seeds had been soaked in almond milk and flavored with a little bit of raw cacao and cinnamon, and once I got over the weird sensation, I realized that all I was truly tasting was creamy cinnamon.
Chia seeds don’t have much taste, but they do have loads of protein, Omega 3′s and fiber, making them the hot new thing for health foodies and normal people alike. Since my first meeting with them, I’ve grown to enjoy their gelatinous texture (they remind me of tapioca), and have developed a taste for chia seed pudding – which isn’t really pudding at all.
Chia seed pudding is a mixture of almond milk (or really any type of milk), chia seeds, cinnamon and cacao – at least in my world. The cool thing about this snack is that you can customize it to your personal taste.
I’ve seen it done with bananas, mixed berries, chocolate almond milk, honey, pumpkin pie spices…you name it, you can add it.
And the best thing? It’s probably the easiest recipe you’ve ever followed.
