Chia Pudding

Rating: 4.24 stars
Chia seeds are a wonderful alternative source of omega-3 fats, fiber, and energy. This easy pudding is similar to tapioca. It can be served warm. Add fresh fruit for a nice twist. Use whatever dried fruit you prefer for topping.

Chia Fresca

This is a refreshing drink much like lemonade.

Chia Seed Chips

Rating: 3.33 stars
While waiting for a batch of crackers to finish baking, I was playing with the remaining dough and forming bite-size rounds and though they would make great chips (and they do -- they're amazing!). These chips should keep for about a week if stored properly.

Almond Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

Rating: 4.27 stars
This is a very quick pudding recipe with chia seeds. No cooking, no fuss, my kind of recipe in the summer. I add strawberry puree, raspberry puree, etc., depending on the availability of fresh fruit.

I love making up a few of these at a time for a quick, on-and-go breakfast. You can use different spices or maple syrup and your favorite berry or fruit.

Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk

Rating: 4.77 stars
Chia seeds make great desserts and are high in omega-3s. This recipe is a healthy alternative to processed desserts. It uses agave (or stevia if you prefer) as a sweetener instead of sugar. Stir again before serving and top with fresh fruit and another dash of cinnamon or spices.

Meyer Lemon Avocado Toast

Rating: 4.78 stars
I like to use this recipe when I have a ripe avocado that I don't want to waste. It is absolutely delicious and a wonderful source of fiber and fatty acids. Feel free to get creative with the ingredients! Substitute cilantro with mint or parsley, or chia seeds with sesame or poppy seeds.
