Chia Pudding

"This is something I'm adapting for myself as a breakfast food/ snack. "Cook Time" is the time it takes the pudding to set up in the fridge. You can use whatever milk and sweetener you like. I like to use white chia seeds, but you can use whatever color you like. I add 1 tablespoon Great Lakes Unflavored Gelatin because it helps the pudding to set up better. Chia puddings which just rely on the chia to set up never really achieve a true pudding consistency; they are loose - more of a gruel, really."

  • In a large container, combine the milk and the chia seeds. Make sure they are mixed together well, you don't want the seeds clumped up or floating on the top. Let sit in the refrigerator for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • After 8 hours have passed, put the milk/chia mixture in a blender. Add all remaining ingredients and process on high for 1 minute.
  • Pour the pudding into one big container or several smaller containers, and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set up.
  • You don't have to blend the mixture if you don't want to, but it incorporates the other ingredients well, and gives more of a traditional pudding texture. If you choose not to blend, just make sure you do a thorough job of stirring in the extra ingredients. If you do not use the blender, I would omit the gelatin as it will probably clump up if you just stir it inches.

<p>I'm originally from Atlanta, GA, but I now live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, cat, and dog. I'm a film and video editor, but cooking is my main hobby - if you can call something you do multiple times a day a hobby. <br />I enjoy all types of food, from molecular gastronomy to 70's suburban Mom type stuff. While I like to make recipes from cookbooks by true chefs, I don't turn my nose up at Campbell's Cream of Mushroom - I'm not a food snob. <br /> I love foods from all nations/cultures, and I am fortunate enough to live in NYC so I can go to restaurants which serve food from pretty much anywhere on the globe. Because of this most of my recipes tend to be in the Western European/American food tradition - I find it easier to pay the experts for more complicated delicacies such as Dosai, Pho &amp; Injera. I really enjoy having so many great food resources available to me here in NYC. One of my favorite stores is Kalustyan's <br />they have every spice, bean, &amp; grain in the world. If there's something you can't find, look on their website. I bet they'll have it and they can ship it to you! <br />Many of my recipes are Southern, because that's the food I grew up on. I hope the recipes I have posted here will be useful to folks out in the 'zaar universe! <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
