Some of you may know that I tried a recipe a while ago for a savory chia pudding (from the now-defunct rawradianthealth.com Youtube channel)and didn't like the texture of the soaked chia. I am not a picky eater but I am grossed out by slimy textures (gee, how bizarre, eh?). For instance, when I was a kid I'd boil eggs a lot and when I uncooked them, the white part is so runny like snot...Yuck! Well, this was a similar experience with the chia. So I put it aside for a long time and am now coming back to wanting to utilize it as a regular part in my diet.
I like to make a raw apple sauce and I decided to put a bit of chia in the Vitamix and give it a whirl. Here's the recipe:
4 organic apples (I used Pink Lady)
water (I don't know how much--start with 1/4 cup)
handful of raisins
2 tsp. chia seeds (I was afraid of putting too much but next time I'm trying more)
Whip up and enjoy. Very yummy and I didn't taste the chia at all. The texture seemed the same as without the chia but maybe even smoother

I do sort-of the same thing, for rice pudding, except soak the rice the night before so that it's roughly the texture that it should be if it was cooked. then put the rice through the Vitamix, first, so you can get it finer than everything else. I still add apples at the end, so that it has sweet lumps in it.
