Chia seeds taste rather bland on its own and can be eaten raw. The best way to consume Chia Seeds is to hydrate the seeds first by adding 1 tablespoon seeds to 1 big cup of water, juice or beverages. Stir well to break up any lumps, let them sit for a few minutes or soak overnight. Lastly, stir before drinking. You can also sprinkle chia seeds on top of your good ol’ bowl of cereal or yoghurt (allow the seeds to hydrate for a few minutes) or blend it in your fruit juice and smoothies.
