  • ¼ cup (60ml) Milk / Water Can use breast milk, formula, cows milk, unsweetened plant based milk (such as soy, oat, almond, coconut)
  • 1 tbsp (9g) Chia Seeds Black or white


  • Add the milk and seeds to a small mixing bowl and mix well. 
  • After a couple of minutes, give the mixture another good mix to ensure any clumps of chia seeds, that may have formed, are properly broken down.
  • Refrigerate and allow the seeds to sit in the liquid until the seeds have absorbed the liquid and a gel is formed, around 30 mins.



Add a spoonful or two of this chia gel into foods like oatmeal, yogurt, soups, sauces or mashed vegetables.
