I tried foodies. I tried so many times to make the super food chia seeds edible. I put some in water to add to a morning protein shake.
They got a little jelly-like.
Put them in my blender to make a mocha smoothie.
I drank it.
The texture of the seeds was still there. Disgusting!
I got rid of them.
After I got over the horror of that awful textured protein shake I thought to myself, what if I ground up the chia seeds, soaked them and then blitzed it in the blender?
Better but I could still tell they were there!
Then I was seduced by a video where they make mocha pudding with chia seeds and I tried again.
But the seeds would not absorb the liquid!
I thought, maybe there are not enough seeds?! And yes, those are chia seeds.
Nope… they bulked up a little but this was not like pudding. Not even close!
This time I used fancy-pants black chia seeds with coffee, thinking that maybe they do not absorb cream? Nope.
OK, maybe this time I can put them into a blender and make an iced mocha and not waste all that coffee and creamer.
It was like a glass of Red River Cereal. A texture nightmare!!!
I Give Up!
It is official. I hate you chia seeds. You are the most over-hyped super food out there. So many promises and you deliver on none of them. I am going to stick with my psyllium seed pills and toss you into the compost. You suck and it is sooooooo over!!!
