How to Eat Chia Seeds
Ready to try chia?
Chia seeds have a neutral flavor and can easily be added to your favorite recipes for an added boost of wholesome nutrition. Eat them raw, add them to smoothies, or sprinkle on top of salads and yogurts, and add them to baked goods.
Chia seeds have an interesting culinary use: they can absorb both water and fat, and when mixed with water will turn into a gel. This makes them an excellent thickening agent for sauces or substitute for eggs.
Chia Pudding Breakfast Bowls
Chia seeds have become the star of a new breakfast trend: chia breakfast bowls (aka chia pudding). Chia pudding can be surprisingly simple to make. Combine chia seeds with a few simple ingredients such as almondåÊmilk and vanilla, then set aside in the fridge to "gel" for as little as 30 minutes or even overnight.
Top a chia bowl with all-natural flavor enhancers such as organic:
- Nuts: pistachios, cashews, macadamia, walnuts, or almonds
- Fruit and Berries
- Herbs or spices: Fresh mint, cinnamon, or cardamon
- Toasted coconut, cacao nibs, maple syrup, Stevia, and more!
