Making chia gel

You can buy chia gel, or make your own by simply adding 1/3 cup chia seeds to 2 cups water (6:1 ratio).

Just put the warm water into a tightly sealed container with a tight-fitting lid and pour the dry seeds into the water. Shake the container for fifteen seconds; let it sit for one minute and then shake it again and your done – chia gel!
