The first of the recipes with chia seeds I will share with you is how to make the basic chia gel which you can use as a thickener for other food items. All you need is some chia seeds and some water; mix 1/3 cup of the seeds with 2 cups of water, stir and allow to stand until the seeds have absorbed the water.

You only need 2tsp of chia seeds for this recipe along with the juice of one lemon or lime and some honey or agave syrup to taste along with 10 ounces of water. Just stir all the above ingredients and chill and enjoy this refreshing drink.
Another one of my favourite quick recipes with chia seeds is the Fruity chia. You will need 2 to 3 apples, 8 dates, ¼ cup mulberries and 5 tbsp chia seeds. Blend the apples along with 6 of the dates and transfer this to a bowl. Mix in the mulberries as well as the chia seeds and top with the remaining 2 dates chopped. Leave this to stand for around 10 minutes before eating.
