Great directions for a general idea on chia gel. Once you start to consume this often all you have to do is eyeball it.

Amazing and simple! Put some in my morning yogurt and it gives it the consistency of tapioca pudding. Thank you for sharing!

I love it this recipe. I mix my raw honey and wheat grass juice with it and take it by the spoonful. It is so much fun to eat this way. For my children I use natural fruit juice they like the different colors and flavors.
