Well that title is a little deceptive but darn if it ain't delicious!

I followed the directions on the Chia seed bag which said to mix 1/3 cup chia seeds with 2 cups water and let it thicken up and then eat 3 tbls 4 times a day.  

But I mixed it with grape juice instead and man... it is like grape juice pudding!  I can't wait to try it with chocolate hemp milk!  

can  a person eat too many chia seeds in a day!!!! ????

I think one can definitely overdo a good thing.

I have not done it with chia seeds. But I have done it with Flax seeds (when I discovered that I could use Flaxseed bread to meet the carbohydrate requirements).

You may want to consider what other nut and seeds you are consuming along with the Chia seed.

The general guideline for hunters is 3-7 vegetable protein servings (a half cup of seed or nuts) a week.  

I am not generally exact in counting measuring portions, but one should avoid going wildly over the recommendations.

When it comes to chia seeds and flax seeds, once they're soaked in water, do they
actually get broken down and fully digested or do they act as bulk and pass through
undigested?  I find that when I grind flax seeds, they're incorporated into my system...
but eaten whole when soaked, I see them in the toilet.  Chia seeds I believe might
be broken down more easily.  Once they gel up in a liquid, the seed sort of melts.
Flax seeds don't fully melt when mixed with liquid.

wwbailey, I have to try your chia grape pudding.  Almond milk might taste good too.
I'm thinking of my diamonds....Carob almond milk chia pudding.  ooh, what a great
idea this is.  Thanks for sharing

I haven't tried chia seeds yet, but I'm using hulled hemp seeds (Bob's Red Mill). I think they're great--but expensive too! I'm thinking that to make hemp milk would be expensive as well.

Do you mean there is more to do with chia seeds than grow "hair" on your Chia Pet?

Of course that depends on the amount you spend on hemp seed and the amount of hemp see you use for milk produced.

I normally add 1/4  cup of seed to a cup of water.

If I wanted to produce a quart of milk, I would need about 4/5 of a cup of seed.

If I was spending $10 per pound of seed, I would be spending about 90 cents per batch $2.84 per quart.

If I was spending $15 per pound of seed, I would be spending about $1.35 per batch or $4.27 per quart.

Of course, if I used less seed I could cut cost.

Oh, thanks. Do you use the same method that you'd use for almond milk?

I soak almonds first, but I do not when using Hemp seeds.

I put a 1/4 cup of shelled hemp seeds into the blender and a cup of water and then run it on high for a few minutes to chop up the seeds.

Thanks. I guess you can then save the seeds for a smoothie or a baked recipe, so it's more economical.

Whooo hoooo!!!!  

take 1-1/2 cuts compliant milk (i used hemp), blend with a good amount of unsweetened chocolate powder and your choice of compliant sweeter and a tbl of vanilla.  then stir in 1/3 cut chia seeds and sit on the counter, stirring every couple of minutes until it thickens...

it's a GREAT tasting pudding!  yummy!

I have made chia pudding by soaking the chia seeds in homemade almond milk instead of water (about 1:5 ratio I believe).  It reminds me of tapioca pudding.

Deba how much grape juice did you use?  You would need to use approx 1/2 cup+1T. to have same consistency as recipe mentioned above.
