Berry, chia and greek yogurt dessert


 





Chia seeds have been in Whole Foods for a long time, but they're just now starting to grow in popularity, said Drew Rosen, nutrition and cooking teacher at New York City's Whole Foods Market Tribeca. "It's an ancient crop, but because the seeds are so flexible and high in omega threes, they are just blossoming all over the markets in all different types of products."

And that is true I had make some recipes but I wanna make something like a dessert with berries and greek yogurt!
I think chia is similar to tapioca in texture.





Ingredients
(5 glasses)
 
2  greek yogurt or plain yogurt  (about 350 g)
2 cups of different berries
(like raspberries,strawberries or blueberries)
3 tablespoon of chia seeds
3 tablespoon of sugar (or other like Splenda  or other)
3/4 cup of cold water

Method


Put chia seeds with the water in a bowl  and let about 4 hours or overnight.
 The mixture will become very thick and pudding like.
Set aside.

In the blender mix the berries, yogurt and sugar until is smooth.
Stir the chia mix with the berries mixture  and spoon into glasses or bowls and top with some berries.
(look like a mousse)
 
 Put in refrigerator until serve.

Postre de  frutos rojos, yogurt y chía










 
La chia es una de esas semillas saludables que se han  vuelto a decubrir últimamente ya que es muy antigua , estuve investigando mucho  antes de hacer este post, es buena para bajar el colesterol, mantener los niveles de azúcar y limpiar el organismo.
Para mi el ideal es mezclarla con algo (como esta crema de berries) o en un queque, porque cuando queda mejor es cuando se coloca en agua, es parecida a la tapioca que es muy rica también y la uso para postres.
Es como la quinoa en el sentido que se adapta a todo porque no tiene sabor, eso es lo bueno, me encantó este postre y los hombres de la casa se lo comieron todo!
 
Ingredientes
(5 porciones)
 
2 yogurt griegos o natural sin sabor
2 tazas de berries surtidos o frambuesas
(congeladas o frescas)
3 cucharadas de semillas de chia
3 cucharadas de azúcar (o un subtituto de azúcar como splenda u otro)
3/4 taza de agua fría
 
Nota: La chia se encuentra en negocios de productos naturales y también en supermercados)
 
Preparación
 
En un bol mediano colocar las semillas de chia con el agua fría, dejar remojar unas horas o toda la noche.
Con este remojo la textura se pondrá como gelatinosa y aumentará de tamaño.
Aparte en la licuadora colocar los berries (descongelar un poco antes) el azúcar, y el yogurt.
Unir la mezcla de berries con la chia batiendo suavemente con una cuchara de palo.
La textura es como un mousse.
Repartir en vasos o copas y adornar con algunas berries.
Llevar al refrigerador  hasta el momento de servir.

  28. I have never tried anything with Chia, Gloria. It looks like I may be missing some real goodness though. I had no idea they thickened up like tapioca. I really should give them a try. Perhaps your dessert is one way for me to begin. It sure looks yummy!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Gloria...
