Chia is here to stay. Chia pudding is most definitely here to stay.
Chia seeds are not a fad or some fashionable ingredient, well actually it is kinda fashionable where food is concerned but put it this way, if Chia was sat in your wardrobe, it would be a classic, one that you can enjoy time and time again and never tire of.
Chia seeds are everywhere. You can find them in snack bars, drinks and treats. Chia seeds are healthy for a number of reasons but they are mainly knows as one of the highest known plant based sources of omega 3 fatty acids.
Chia seeds help control cholesterol, weight and diabetes. When wet, they have a gelatinous coating that helps slow down digestion. They are also full of fibre and protein.
Where can I buy Chia seeds
Most supermarkets stock chia seeds. You can also buy them in bulk on line. I bought mine from Chia4UK where they offer top quality goods at the most affordable prices. They are local too, based in Northumberland.
Play around with fruit quantities in this recipe. In hindsight, I made too much fruit and not enough of the chia mix. Next time I think I’d make it 2/3 chia mix and 1/3 fruit but hey they photos look pretty and colourful and I didn’t have time to start over.
