Chia Recipe



Another one of my favorite recipes, packed with valuable nutrition that is easily absorbed. As always be creative and adjust the recipe to your individual needs and favourite flavours. Great snack to bring to a pot luck which is guaranteed to be enjoyed by all regardless of age.



1 part (cup) raw chia seeds
2 parts (cups) high quality water, high quality juice or my preference, 1cup water and 1 cup juice 

Chopped fresh or frozen fruits (apples, pears, mangoes, berries, etc.) – adjust type variety of fruit and amount to personal preference; I add lots
Optional: seeds, raisins, nuts, goji berries etc.


Soak all seeds, raisins, goji berries and nuts for about 2 hours (not necessary but preferable for enhanced absorption of nutrients).
Mix all ingredients in large bowl.
Chill in fridge, freezer or right now in the snowy winter wonderland.
The mixture will jell by itself because Chia seeds can absorb an incredible amount of liquid.
Serve and enjoy
