Here are four delicious ways to eat chia seeds:
- Add them directly into foods like smoothies, yogurt, soup, oatmeal, or porridge.
- Create a “chia gel” of ¼ cup of chia seeds with 1 cup of liquid. “This gel can then be used as a nutritional booster and thickener for a variety of foods,” says Romano.
- Make chia pudding by mixing ¼ cup chia seeds with 1 cup of milk (dairy or nondairy) and topping with fruits and nuts. “This is a fan favorite and can be used as a dessert, snack, or breakfast,” says Romano.
- Add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds to your go-to overnight oats recipe to give it a nutritional punch while offering a thick consistency.
