  1. Is that really a picture of this recipe? I blended mine in the food processor for about 5 minutes and it still had the seed husks (shells? The hard part anyways!) clearly visible and you can feel the texture of them as well when eating. I used ground chia seeds… was that my issue? Should I have started with whole ones? Thanks for any help you could give me 🙂

    1. Soak the chia seeds or ground chia seeds in some of the cooking liquid/milk for 10 minutes before blending.

  2. Would it make a huge difference if I were to use regular milk and butter as suppose to the almond milk/butter?
