Whole chia seeds set up and turn into gelatin and this is really delish. Best if eaten within 24 hours. I use skim milk and Splenda to reduce calories but you could use coconut milk, whole milk, almond milk, etc as well as sugar, maple syrup, agave.
- 1 1⁄2 cups skim milk
- 4 tablespoons Splenda granular
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄3 cup chia seeds
- whipped cream, berries, etc
- Whisk milk, Splenda, cocoa powder and extract until smooth. Stir in chia seeds. Divide evenly between 4 dishes. Let sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
This was my first experience with chia seeds and it was very good. My kids liked it, too. I would definitely make this again. I did make a couple of general changes, such as using milk in place of almond milk and brown sugar in place of the artificial sweetener splenda. Next time I will use coconut sugar; I was just out of it at the moment. Due to using regular milk, I did not let it sit out at room temperature for 2 hours, but instead let it gel in the refrigerator. It took a little more than two hours to gel which may be due to the temperature? Thank you for a first good experience with chia seeds.
Fantastic! This is so easy, so good for you, and absolutely delicious! I used almond milk to make it even healthier. As easy as this is to make, I'm going to make it a lot!
