Chef Tips

If not used to eating chia, its fiber content can cause bloating and gassiness.  As delicious as this dessert is, only eat a small portion, and not the whole thing.

Soak chia overnight in the fridge. It will absorb 9 times its volume of liquid. Chia also takes up flavors easily, so soak it in diluted fruit juice, lemon or lime water, coconut water or even cold herb tea.
