Growing up, I remember the commercials. I remember the tone in the woman’s voice as she sang the “Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia!” It has stuck with me.. for years.
As the years went on, it seemed to be getting weirder…
And even weirder..
Or is it #strangebutgood? Hmmm… As the pets got stranger, chia seeds were not only being used as pets in my kitchen. Chia seeds became FOOD!
So, here’s to another STRANGEbutGOOD Friday in the foodie world–(Thanks to Laura)!
I have put chia in cottage cheese, yogurt, smoothies… but this recipe is a new one for me. Honestly I was scared at first. I didn’t know what was to come from these little guys. From experience, I knew they became gel-like, but a bunch of them in my mouth??
I have seen recipes like this in many places, so I am not reinventing the wheel. However, I threw some ingredients in a bowl, let it sit, and liked it!
Of course, the main ingredient:::
CHIA SEED! Looking at the nutrition facts below, chia seeds are full of Omega-3s, fiber, and protein. What a SUPER FOOD!!?
Alongside the CHIA seeds is my favorite milk, SILK!
