Chia Pudding?

Monday, August 31, 2015

So I tried to make Chia Pudding.

You know where this is going, right?

I used this recipe:

Combine 1 single serving sized container of Premier Pre-Mixed Chocolate Protein with 3 tablespoons of Chia Seeds in a sealable container. Refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Ok, so I used Pure Protein instead, since that's what I had on hand. Is it really the only thing that works?

It took longer than a couple of hours to thicken, and after 24 hours, it was still kind of pourable. And the seeds were still crunchy. Kind of like poppy seeds. But it tasted good.

So, is that what it's supposed to be like? I was expecting something more like tapioca. So…? IS it supposed to be like that, or did I do something wrong? Help! Thanks!

    I never made chia seed pudding. But looks yum. I'll blend to see what's the difference for texture wise. Wonder if works with veg protein such as pea protein..?

    Heard of it but never saw it. Tapioca is what I would have thought too. Never made it though. Should ask Meg. She's one that works on the recipes here.

    I made something like that a while back and found it had a weird texture so I was going to blend it the next time I make it.

    Maybe you could blend it and see if it helps

    Hmm I'm not sure but another person said hers didn't set up either. Maybe it's the kind of seeds you use? I'm not even sure if they're different? If you figure it out, let us all know! :)
