- Homemade Chia Seed Puddings –
A lot of times, puddings gel because of gelatin and fats contained in the recipe. While that usually makes puddings delicious, the sugars combine with the fats to create a relatively high glycemic index dessert.
However, chia seeds can absorb water to make a gel-like substance. It’s perfect for puddings. Blend together some milk, a low glycemic index fruit, and chia seeds, and you’ll have a perfect substitute for high glycemic index puddings.
