Healthy, Vegan, Gluten-Free Chia Seed Pudding

The first time someone had me try chia seeds, I wasn’t sure what to do.

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.

  3. Yup, I DEFINITELY just went out and bought chia seeds because of this post. I’m going to sub coconut milk for almond milk…I’ll report back! :)

  4. Awesome, friends! Let me know what your taste bud experience is….

  5. In a couple of weeks, the YBYM Mental Health Month Challenge is going to be about learning to make one new, healthy dish. I think this’ll be the one I do, and then report back in a follow up.
