This dish is very simple, very tasty, and very filling! I've had some chia seeds sitting in my pantry for a few months now and, after a little research, made some chia seed gel (1/3 cup chia seeds mixed with 2 cups of water or fresh fruit juice - or perhaps a nut milk). Haha, it was very exciting to wait and watch...

Recipe Directions

1. Finely chop fruit and add chia gel.

2. Or you can throw it all into a blender for a pulse (or three) and spoon into a bowl.

This dish is very simple, very tasty, and very filling!

I've had some chia seeds sitting in my pantry for a few months now and, after a little research, made some chia seed gel (1/3 cup chia seeds mixed with 2 cups of water or fresh fruit juice - or perhaps a nut milk).

Haha, it was very exciting to wait and watch those little seeds to soak up the water--a minimum of 10 minutes--and the gel can be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container (for up to 2 weeks if mixed with water).

It reminded me of pearl tapioca, which I haven't eaten since I was 7 years old!

Any variation of fruits may be used. These ingredients are what I laid my hands on first this morning! Can't wait to try it with papaya, banana, grapes, etc.

Mmmm, a sprinkle of nuts would be a good addition, too.

As the gel has a neutral flavour, I will be trying it in soups, etc, this week as a thickening agent and for texture.
