Carob Chia Seed Bubble Tea

This inventive recipe from Lidia of Air Eater is part of our month-long celebration of the tiny super food, chia. When chia seed is mixed with liquid, it forms a thick gel, making it a fun and healthy alternative to tapioca pearls in traditional bubble tea.

Carob Chia Seed Bubble Tea
(serves 1)

1/4 cup Chia Seeds
1 tbsp Toasted Carob Powder
1 tbsp Evaporated Cane Juice sugar
1 cup of brewed Tea
1-1/2 cups of Almond Milk (or favourite milk)
1/2 cup of Ice
1/2 cup sliced Strawberries

Soak the chia seeds in the almond milk in a medium sized bowl as they will expand. Stir occasionally for 10 minutes, mixture will thicken slightly. Cover the bowl and soak in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours. Make a cup of your favorite green tea, a fruit variety would add flavour, but any will do. Cool to room temperature.

If you have a large shaker cup with a lid, use this, or a container with a tight lid. Pour the rest of the ingredients with the refrigerated mixture. Make sure your container is closed tight and shake for a minute.

Add the strawberries first and then pour the mixture over and serve.
