I read a recipe where you mix it w yogurt- do you do that the night before or in the morning?

Do you mix it w water in the morning or the night before?



I think it depends on how you like them If you mix them with water the night before, they get a gelatinous texture around them. When I use them (so far only with smoothies), I just add them before having the smoothie and they are crunchy, like strawberries seeds. If you have them this way, check your teeth before going out Chat Icon

That's why I soak them. Too many wedged permanently in my teeth even after brushing and flossing!!!!

I soak mine in almond milk.

This bubble tea is intriguing me.

And all this time I thought people had chocolate chips swirling around on the bottom of their drinks....Chat Icon

Looks like a shake to me. So I looked it up and its pretty high in calories. So do you drink this to replace a meal?
