About this recipe: We've probably all heard of the omega-3 rich chia seeds by now! This is a very simple and extremely delicious dessert recipe that you can use them in. Chia seeds can be found in the larger supermarkets or in health food shops. Te turn into a jelly-like texture when soaked in liquid.
I liked this and really wasn't sure what to think at first. I followed the recipe exactly except using 1 percent milk and plain instant coffee, which worked fine. I also just mixed the honey in with the milk, but I liked that it still wasn't too sweet. After taking it from the fridge, I wasn't too happy with it at first. The chia seed texture was just so odd. The seeds were a mix of a gel and crunchy texture which did not work for me. However, I decided to stick the pudding in the vitamix to whip it up. I normally use chia seeds in smoothies with no problem. It made the pudding nice and smooth at about 30 seconds on high. Chia seeds are so good for the stomach and I have not had any indigestion, today, which I normally do. I will definitely make this again, but double it to get more than 2 servings, and definitely blend it all together again when it is done chilling in the fridge. ty - 01 Jul 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is so delicious! I've made it with white sugar, sugar substitutes, and coconut sugar - and also with almond and soy milk. All work wonderfully! - 23 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My new favorite dessert. I add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla as well. Allow the mixture to sit at room temp for an hour versus 30 mins to speed up liquid absorption (the seeds swell faster at warm temps). In addition, microwave the milk for a minute to warm it up before stirring it into the dry ingredients. It better dissolves the sugar and speeds up the absorption as well. Absolutely FABULOUS dessert. Must try it! - 22 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
