Navitas Naturals offers these small, whole, organic chia seeds in their pure state - nothing more, nothing less. Long used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans as a staple food along with corn and beans, chia seeds are enjoying a large resurgence in the health food community due to their impressive nutritional profile. Chock full of healthy omega fats, protein, antioxidants, and dietary fiber, the little chia seed goes a long way to earn its qualifier of "power." Try sprinkling these mildly nutty seeds in with your breakfast bowl, mix into a salad dressing or dip, or soak them in water or juice to form a gel and use as natural thickening agent for soups and other recipes.
Chia "Pudding" Recipe: In a shaker bottle, mix together 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 1/2 cups almond milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup, honey, or equivalent Stevia. For chocolate flavor, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder. For additional protein, add a scoop of your favorite unflavored protein powder. (If using a sweetened, flavored protein powder, you may want to omit the vanilla and sweeteners.) Shake well and make sure chia seeds are completely covered by almond milk. Refrigerate overnight. The chia seeds will soak up the milk and become thick, similar to tapioca. Eat with a spoon or "slurp it up" with a straw. Delicious and nutritious!
