 Plant Based Milk Alternative ... CHIA

There are many different plant based cow's milk alternatives on the market. When you are deciding which one to purchase, you need to look at the labels to find the right product for you. 


 

A new product in the marketplace is  Chia Milk from Seeds of Wellness. Chia is a powerful superfood which contains vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, something important for our bodies but missing in many of our diets.

Recipes

I enjoy using Chia Milk in my recipes.  When I first started using Chia Milk, I substituted Chia Milk for a portion of the Almond Milk I would use in recipes. I started with 1/4 of a cup then increased slowly until I got to a 50/50 mix. Pictured below is Overnight Oats using Blueberries and a 50/50 mix of Chia Milk/Almond Milk. I based this off my Spirit of Spring Overnight Oats.
