Chia Milk


Great substitute for milk. In baking you can't taste the difference, and it has a pleasant taste for drinking. Cheap and good for you too!

5 cups


  • 5 cups water, divided

  • ¼ cup chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons walnuts

  • 2 tablespoons sesame tahini

  • 1 teaspoon honey, or to taste

  • 1 dash vanilla extract (Optional)


  1. Combine 3 cups water, chia seeds, and walnuts in a bowl; stir to prevent clumps from forming. Let soak for 8 hours to overnight.

  2. Pour chia seed mixture into a blender; add 1 cup water, tahini, honey, and vanilla extract. Cover and blend until smooth; add reminding water.

Cook's Notes:

If I am using this recipe for soup, etc., I only add a bit of honey (milk is too sweet) and leave out the vanilla.

Toasted sesame tahini can be used instead of raw, if desired.
