Very creative! I'll have to try this with my chia seeds. They really do look like the frog eggs i'd see in ponds as a kid.

Good idea - but I think I'll hold off until my daughter is a bit older, though. (She'll be a week short of 2 on Halloween this year.)... I'll click favorite and hopefully remember next year.

I'd imagine passionfruit seeds would work too - they already look like yellowish-greenish alien eggs anyway - though the fruit tends to be kind of expensive... especially in autumn.

Thai is awesome! Chia or flax seeds might work too.

author
klinong (author)myrrhmaid2015-09-17

chia works too, yes but flax seeds not so much since they have a distinctive flavor IMO

1. Is it actually edible?

2. This is the most disgusting looking thing I've ever seen in a glass.

3. Good Job!

Oh yes!! Definitely :) The basil seeds is used for making delicious drinks and desserts in Asian countries. And yes hahahah the first time I ever served this for our annual Halloween party, kids thought they were real so they didn't wanna try it until they saw their mums and dads tried it :) It is not so scary anymore to these kids (as I always invite the same kiddies so they already know about this "frog eggs") hahaha.

Once bloomed, they are tender, a tad chewy (just a tad) and a tad crunchy (the black parts. It's almost like kiwi seeds in jelly.
