I discovered chia seeds a few years ago when I started to bake a little bit healthier and I decided to completely stop eating refined sugar. First, I was not sure why people were so excited about it.
Well, I knew it is a supercharged seed rich in fiber and minerals but I did not think it added lots of taste to baking. I later understood that the power of chia seeds was not their taste but their amazing abilities to soak water 12 times of their weight!
And creating a jelly-like texture when soaked in liquid. As almost half of the chia seeds are made of fiber it also means that most of them are not digested by our body therefore not adding extra calories to our diet and improving transit.
So I started to use them a lot in desserts to create pudding, parfait, flan, cream, or even jam. Today I am sharing one of my favorite snack recipes that I called a Raspberry and Cream Chia Seeds Pudding.
While not containing cream, I really think it tastes like the Strawberry & Cream drink I was used to drinking from Starbucks.
It is a very simple snack to prepare the only thing is it has to be made the day before to enjoy the pudding-like texture. But then, it stores very well in your fridge if you cover the bowl with a plastic wrap to avoid the top to dry.
I like to experiment with different dairy-free milk, berries, or grounded nuts to create a variety of snacks each time. It has also been approved by my 2 years old little girl so I will say it is a very family-friendly snack or even dessert if you like.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Leave me a comment if you try this. Carine.
