These chia seeds can be used just like you'd use any regular chia seeds. I usually throw them into my yogurt, add them to oatmeal, toss them in smoothies, or add them to dressings. I made steel cut oatmeal the other day and stirred them into the oatmeal when it was done cooking, along with some PB and toppings.
The neat thing about chia seeds is they absorb liquid, and become gelatinous and expand when in liquid. You can make an easy pudding with them by adding 3 T to 1 cup chocolate milk or vanilla almond milk, or another milk-like beverage. You can then add vanilla, cocoa, or any other flavouring to your pudding.
I mixed 1 cup sweetened chocolate almond milk with 3 T of the chia seeds and let it sit for a few hours in the fridge. Then I topped the pudding with coconut, nuts and chocolate chips. It was a healthy, delicious dessert.
I've been wanting to add probiotics to my diet, and since I eat chia seeds anyway, this is an easy and convenient way to do it. I'll definitely buy these in the future.
You can purchase chia seeds and other products from Prana on their website. They have free shipping within Canada!
