How do I make berry chia pudding?
Mix together chia seeds and water, stir. Set aside on counter for 20-25 minutes, stir occasionally. (don't let set in fridge, it gets goopy)
Expert Tip: Stir well with a whisk right away, and occasionally so it doesn't get goopy. Keep at room temperature.
Add milk, vanilla, and sugar after seeds have expanded. Top with fresh berries and enjoy
- Stir well with a whisk right away
- If you can, stir a couple other times while it sets, this will help prevent clumping
- Let it set at room temperature, this too will help prevent clumping.
- Wash your hands after making, and check your clothes- these chia seeds are sticky! I've found them lodged in my fingernails, on my sandals, and stuck to the counter a few times. It's a bit messy, but super easy to wipe up when hydrated.
What can I make with leftover ingredients?
- (chia seeds) Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding, PB Granola, and Hawaiian Roll Sliders.
- (berries) Blueberry Chocolate Muffins, Summer Berry Salad
