I'm a little late to the chia party. All the health conscious people I know have been recommending chia seeds for a while. I finally tried them recently. Guess what? I'm in love. They go in our morning oatmeal daily. they get sprinkled in and on top of bread. They get tossed into smoothies.
Today I debuted them for dessert!
Actually, Meg made this by herself.
(enough for our crowd!)
1 1/2 cups organic black chia seeds
about six cups unsweetened almond milk
sugar to taste
about 2 teaspoons vanilla
pinch of salt
Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Let it set for about 45 minutes, stirring every five minutes or so. This will thicken by itself. It will be sort of like tapioca pudding.
Top with fresh whipped cream.
Can dessert be healthy? I say "Yes!"
