Nutiva Organic Chia Seed Black during one of my online shopping at Vitacost. The good thing about the super food is that it has no taste, making it really adaptable for use in both sweet and savoury recipes. Do you know that chia seed swell up to 12 times its weight in liquid within 10 minutes, so you don't actually need to use a lot?
Chinese New Year 8-Course Festive Dinner With Friends, I had prepared some mango desserts and added some chia seeds to them. I also added Nata de Coco, a chewy, translucent jelly-like ingredient often mixed with desserts.
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 pkt Nata de Coco
6 scoops of Mango ice-cream
- Soak chia seeds in water till they turn gluey.
- De-skin mango, and cut into cubes.
- Blend the mango together with the liquid from the Nata de Coco.
- Pour into a container and cover. Refrigerate.
- Scoop the ice cream into serving bowls. Pour mango puree and top with chia seeds and nata de coco. Serve your Bejewelled Mango Puree with Chia Seeds Dessert ( 珠光宝气芒果泥 ) chilled.
