I used to have a large container of chia seeds. I need to restock. Chia pudding is a great alternative to a high calorie dessert (and a great breakfast). Books sounds intriguing.

Chia seeds are also versatile, Debra. And yes, I have a preference for lower calorie treats that still pack a lot of flavor :)

I love blueberries but have never tried Chia. What do they taste like?

Simona Carini

Chia seeds don't have a strong flavor. They are more about texture and their nutritional value. When you add water or another liquid to them and let them sit, they form a gelatinous mass which retains a bit of graininess. So the flavor mostly is that of what you add to chia seeds. In the case of the pudding, the light flavor of cashew milk, vanilla, almonds and blueberries. Almonds and blueberries also add their texture so the end result is quite pleasant (see my recipe for seed crackers as another example of the use of chia seeds)

Thanks much Simona - I appreciate the enlightenment
