The Constipated Cow Series
FUN FACT: Chia seeds have more calcium than cows milk. (whoop whoop (insert fist pump emoji here)- in your face constipating cows)!!
It all started a few years back when I had gotten Zay a Chia Pod from Fresh Market when we were visiting my mom in Florida and he LOVED it. One problem... they were SOOO expensive. So I did a little research, confident these could be made at home and I found a recipe online. Since then, I have adapted for "Zay approved" consumption. :) They are SUPER easy to make and a great snack to add some calcium to your diet. If you'd like to give it a whirl, here's the recipe!
1 cup almond milk (homemade to unsweetened store bought)
1/4 cup chia seeds
Sprinkle in some Cinnamon (Zay loves cinnamon so I always add a lot :)
OPTIONAL: Drizzle in a little agave or honey (for sweetness) OR puree a (very) ripe banana (for some extra fruit!) and add in
Mix well with a fork for at least 1 minute
Cover and store in fridge overnight to thicken
Enjoy for breakfast or a snack!
