Chia seeds form a gel when soaked in liquid so they help to make a dessert similar to tapioca pudding and fill you up! Top the dessert with coconut and raisins or fresh fruit.
This is a nice, healthy recipe that I like to have for breakfast sometimes. I've used regular milk, and I've also used almond milk which turns out really tasty. Instead of sugar I use stevia, and I add about 4 tsp of cocoa powder to make it a chocolate pudding. Berries go really well on top. PS- the more chia you add per amount of liquid, the thicker the pudding is/ the more the chia gells up. - 26 Jul 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Let this set overnight at most - if left longer it starts to take on a very strong grain taste and the texture goes from tapioca-like to frog egg-like. It gives some variety to the chia menu I suppose. However, if I make it again I'll make a half batch to avoid keeping it around too long. - 02 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this - I usually make it chocolate, and either use coconut sugar or a few tbsp of raw honey. Both are great! - 24 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
