This healthy snack is a cinch to make and you’ll save a ton of money over the store bought chia pouches.
Author:Julie - My Merry Messy Life
1 cup of fruit of choice (I used organic blueberries – frozen/thawed)
1 cup water (coconut water or coconut milk are tasty options)
About 1T of honey or maple syrup (Optional. Taste your purée before adding sweetener to taste. My son doesn’t mind these pouches being not-so-sweet).
⅓ cup chia seeds
Blend fruit and liquid till smooth. Add to a bowl/jar. Add chia seeds and stir to coat. Soak overnight. Give the mixture a good stir to combine and spoon into your food pouches. If this mixture is really thick you can add extra liquid to thin it out. I tend not to fill the pouches to capacity (my son doesn’t notice) and this mixture will fill about 5-7 of the pouches. Refrigerate and eat within 2 weeks. I do keep these cool for longer trips but they have been fine in my purse for a quick snack.
