They are neutral in flavour and swell up in water. High in fibre 32g per 100g.

Chia seeds have so many wonderful applications, ground up they can be mixed with water as egg replacement, providing binding power for baked goods and are also used for thickening sauces. Or even soak some with almond milk and enjoy with chopped fruit for a delicious chia raw 'porridge'.

These are lovely for a dessert - add 2 cups of coconut milk to half a cup of chia seeds and flavour with a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder and a drop of vanilla - sweeten to taste, chuck the fridge for half an hour and you've a lovely, tasty, healthy dessert. Awesome!

I tried the cake recipe using chia seeds and it was very tasty. I also love the idea of having strawberries for breakfast with a chia seed 'porridge', Delicious!

Overnight Oat and Chia Porridge Recipe

Summary: Try this creamy no-cook overnight chia seeds and oat porridge for a healthy start to your day. Oats are a great source of beta-glucans, which are known to decrease blood cholesterol and reduce the rise in blood glucose and therefore the insulin response after a meal. Both oats and chia seeds are fantastic sources of dietary fibre, in fact this porridge gives you almost 15g fibre, half your daily requirements. Oats and chia seeds also both have a healthy balance of healthy fats, good quality protein and energy giving carbohydrates, and they both keep you fuller longer, making this porridge ideal breakfast food.

Raw Vegan Mango Coconut Passion Fruit Chia Pudding Recipe

Summary: Chia seeds are one of the most popular superfoods within the health community. Originally from Mexico, chia seeds are very nutritionally dense, being the second best plant source of Omega 3 ALA (an ounce - 28g - of chia seeds will give you almost 5g of Omega 3) after flax seeds, both better sources than salmon, and an excellent source of protein, Calcium, Phosphorus and dietary fibre (an ounce of chia seeds will give you almost half of the recommended daily intake of fibre). Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and it is said that Aztec warriors would travel great distances, carrying the equivalent of just one spoonful of chia seeds, along with their water pouch, and that this would be enough to sustain them for a whole day or running long distances and battles. Chia seed pudding is therefore an excellent choice for breakfast, to easily keep us fuelled until a late lunch. You can prepare enough chia pudding for a few days and keep it refrigerated. Given enough time, chia seeds will soak a lot of liquid, up to 12 times their volume. Adjust the amount of liquid to your preferred consistency and the soaking time available to you. I have included bee pollen in this recipe as some vegans include bee products in their diets, but please leave it out to keep this recipe strictly vegan.

Raw Vegan Banana And Passion Fruit Smooth Chia Pudding Recipe

Summary: Chia Pudding usually calls for soaking the chia seeds in a flavoured liquid (such as almond milk, coconut milk or your favourite homemade dairy free milk substitute) and letting the seeds soak the liquid for anything from an hour to overnight. As the seeds soak up the liquid, each individual seed gets surrounded by a jelly-like bubble, and the resulting chia pudding has a texture resembling that of tapioca pudding, or frog spawn. Chia seeds are a very popular superfood, particularly due to their high Omega 3 content ; they are also very high in fibre and chia pudding is an ideal breakfast, as it keeps one full until lunch. If you are not keen on the texture, you can still enjoy the benefits of adding chia puddings to your diet, by simply blending them until smooth. This super simple recipe is a great example of a smooth chia pudding for a high energy breakfast, naturally sweetened by the bananas. It would also make a lovely dessert or snack for adults and children alike.
