After I saw Kathleen’s recent blog post about Chia Seed Strawberry Jam (which looked amazing…check it out!), I was thinking, I bet you could use the same method for a strawberry pie. Sure enough, (thanks to the power of Google) I was able to find a recipe! I don’t have much experience with Chia seeds, so I needed some guidance.
I used the recipe off of It’s a Flavourful Life’s blog. The only modifications that I used was that I added 1/ 4 cup of sugar to the strawberry puree. I also added s bit more water and rolled out the crust instead on patting in in the pie pan.
Oh, and I added a chocolate shell to the crust! I use this technique a lot so the crust doesn’t get soggy after sitting for a couple of days. Also, it happens to be amazing with pie crust
I forgot to blend the mixture of the chia seeds (I left them whole) but it still turned out great! Next time, I’ll be better at reading the instructions. I think I got too excited :P
Did you making any fun foods this weekend??
