Chia pudding made from Chia seeds come from the plant called Sagecultivated in Mexico and other Central American countries. These seeds are rich in fiber and they have a great capacity to absorb water, thus increasing their volume and, therefore, the feeling of satiety with their consumption, something to take into account when using it in preparations like the one we are proposing today when we talk about quantities.

For hydrate chiaIn this case, we have used rice drink, but you can use any other vegetable drink, whole or skimmed milk. It is the good thing about chia, which adapts to all our tastes. Chia can also be hydrated with blended fruits and even with vegetables or broths to use it in savory preparations.

For today’s chia pudding, we have also used agave syrup to sweeten and a bit of vanilla paste to provide a sweeter flavor. We have accompanied it with tangerine segments, although who says tangerine says banana, red fruits, apples, pears… This pudding is so versatile that you can adapt it to your tastes. Below is the recipe.
