Chia Pudding

Rating: 4 stars 25
Chia seeds are a wonderful alternative source of omega-3 fats, fiber, and energy. This easy pudding is similar to tapioca. It can be served warm. Add fresh fruit for a nice twist. Use whatever dried fruit you prefer for topping.

Chia Fresca

This is a refreshing drink much like lemonade.

Chia Seed Chips

Rating: 3.5 stars 6
While waiting for a batch of crackers to finish baking, I was playing with the remaining dough and forming bite-size rounds and though they would make great chips (and they do -- they're amazing!). These chips should keep for about a week if stored properly.

Almond Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

Rating: 4.5 stars 46
This is a very quick pudding recipe with chia seeds. No cooking, no fuss, my kind of recipe in the summer. I add strawberry puree, raspberry puree, etc., depending on the availability of fresh fruit.

Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk

Rating: 5 stars 57
Chia seeds make great desserts and are high in omega-3s. This recipe is a healthy alternative to processed desserts. It uses agave (or stevia if you prefer) as a sweetener instead of sugar. Stir again before serving and top with fresh fruit and another dash of cinnamon or spices.
