Strawberry Chia "Tapioca"
THM:S, low carb, sugar free, gluten/egg/dairy free | If you have a nut allergy but can have coconut products, you could try substituting carton coconut milk for the unsweetened almond milk.
Serves: 1
  1. Blend everything but the chia seeds until smooth. (I do this in a saucepan with an immersion blender, but a regular blender would work fine.) Pour the mixture into a saucepan, whisk in the chia seeds, and bring to a boil. Once the mixture comes to a boil, pull it off the heat. Refrigerate overnight to thicken. Enjoy!
This yields a tapioca-like pudding of a medium consistency. For a thicker pudding, use 4 T. chia seeds.
If you don't have a dairy intolerance and want to increase the creaminess in this, add 2 T. cottage cheese and/or 2 T. half and half. Add before blending.
You can try substituting whey protein powder for the collagen, but I prefer the taste (rather, the lack of taste) of collagen.
