Chia seed puddings have been popular for a while now, but have you noticed the new Chia Seed Drinks that have been popping up all over the place lately?  They're filling and nutritious and really fun to drink.  What's not so fun about them is the price - I'm not paying 4 or 5 bucks for an 8-ounce drink that I can easily make for a fraction of the price.  Here's how.

Chia seeds are high in nutrients, high in antioxidants, high in fiber, high in protein, and they're a whole lot of fun to eat.  They absorb at least 10 times their weight in liquid which makes them puff up and gel - similar in texture to tomato seeds.
