Chia seeds expand in liquid and have a jelly-like consistency. They are great to use in desserts, making them filling and nutritious. Enjoy this dessert with any fruit you have handy but it does work best with berries.
Very good flavor! I love the addition of the cinnamon. Definitely don't leave it out! I used unsweetened almond/coconut milk blend because I didn't have soy milk. I split the mixture between 4 bowls. This gets REALLY thick. I ended up having to add an extra 2-3tbsp milk to each bowl. Next time I will use about half the amount of chia seed. You really don't need that much chia for it to thicken the pudding. I also ended up adding a bit more honey than stated (personal preference). I topped it with a few raspberries. I was able to eat this after 20mins or so. It didn't need an hour to set. Makes a great breakfast or nighttime snack. Thank you completenovice! - 09 Nov 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Made this for quick breakfasts. On the advice of the other reviewer, I reduced the chia seed by half and that was more than plenty. Also, I agree that the mixture doesn't need to set for more than 20-30 minutes. I omitted the hemp seeds. I portioned out into 4 bowls and topped with slivered almonds, chocolate chips, and sweetened coconut. This was my first time working with chia seeds, really interesting and delicious. - 27 Jan 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is quite tasty but way too thick as the other reviewers mentioned. I used the proportions written but used coconut milk instead of soy. It was seriously thick and had to add about a quarter cup of extra liquid to get it to a pudding consistency, which I added after the one-hour rest period. It keeps in the fridge well making it an excellent candidate for a party dessert that won’t bust your buckle or budget. Thank you for the recipe. - 08 Mar 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
