Chia Seeds Recipes?

Can't Post | Private Reply
Anyone use chia seeds in their kitchen?

Currently we use chia seeds as :

An add in to aguas fresca or jugo
A topping to oatmeal or cereal
Baking things like muffins,cookies or breads can have some chia seeds added in without changing the recipe much


I read somewhere you can make a chia seed "gel" by simply adding chia seeds to water, stirring, waiting five minutes, then whisking thouroughly and refridgerating. Then , you can use the gel for many things- the one application I remember well is using the gel to cut half and half with mayonaise. I cant stand mayo, but the inlaws use it frequently and Im trying to make it a bit healthier. Supposedly this does not change the taste.

(I will search for thislink and be back when I find it)

My next project will be to sprout chia seeds and eat the sprouts

Am interested in any other ways you use chia in the kitchen!

Looks like we are having yogurt for breakfast tomorrow! I actually have plain, sugar free yogurt in the fridge right now. No berries, but do have mangos on hand! What a great idea. And I love thicker yogurt, the consistency of greek yogurt - I see how the chia seeds would thicken it up a bit! Yum ! Thanks for sharing!


I also forgot to say, I have put them in popsicles that I make for my toddler (and myself wink wink)?
