I have not jumped on all the new trendy health foods bandwagon, but a few have peaked my interest and taste buds along the way. I have been wanting to try chia seeds for quite some time and I figured this was as good excused as any. This has been a big part of my Pinterest searching recently- finding a recipe or something that looked actually edible with this strange looking seeds. I found a really great recipe to quench my summer and chia seed thirst, all I needed was popsicle molds. I asked my boyfriend to pick some up at the store, and this is what he came back with:
While these are all kinds of rad and I’m sure I will find a purpose for them later, I’m sadly going to have to do the popsicles another time.
Anyways, I rarely ever read the actual post prior to the recipe, but this particular popsicle post, which I will share at a later date got me really excited and interested in CHIA SEEDS! PARTY! Ok, so maybe not that entirely exciting.
I have been cooped up in the house all day, from what I will attribute to strep so I will go on and share. Since I got started on this pretty late in the day, I will have to see how they actually taste tomorrow because they have to set for 6 hours. Even though I’m not a fan of long wait times in recipes, I’m not sticking this is the freezer because I have no idea what will happen (creature from the black lagoon may perhaps appear).
I mixed all the ingredients in a big glass bowl and poured into individual mason jars and topped with espresso covered cacao bits, which I realize wasn’t in the recipe, but I have to add my flair somewhere!
*Update*-The pudding turned out pretty well for a first try. It was a little liquidy, but that small part was easy to pour out with a decent size left. It was actually quite good and certainly something I will experiment with again in the future.
