Aside from the many health benefits of chia seeds, they also help you feel full as the seeds expand. In fact, two tablespoons of seeds have six grams of protein, the equivalent of an egg!
Try this basic recipe and mix it up to create a variety of flavors. It’s a great ‘make ahead’ for a quick breakfast, snack, or a Shabbos treat.
Whisk all ingredients in a small container or blend for smoother consistency. I love to use little glass mason jars.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. They keep for four to five days in the fridge.
For a smoother consistency, blend the chia seeds before or after adding to the recipe, prior to refrigerating.
Here are some yummy add ins:
Chopped walnuts; cinnamon; fresh or frozen fruit like apples, strawberries, blueberries, sliced bananas, or cherries; cocoa/cacao powder; nut butter or PB2; a few mini high-cacao choc chips. Think apple pie, banana walnut, pb & jelly, choc pb, carrot cake. The possibilities are endless.
