Chia seeds breakfast is one of my favourite, perhaps because it tastes more like a pudding and can be enjoyed any time. I use chia seeds for various different recipes. As one of the superfoods they are high in fibre and low in calories. Chia seeds will boost your energy and metabolism. They are rich in Omega-3 and are great source of hydration for athletes. This recipe is best if you prepare it in the evening and have it for your breakfast next day. It also works really well as a healthy option for a desert.
I use small 170ml jars to mix the ingredients; this is a great way of storing but also to carry with me if I needed to.
The ingredients below are suggestion for three different servings; your base will be chia seeds and milk. I like my chia seeds breakfast with topped with berries but you can add any fruit or nuts you like to make the recipe different each time.
Prep time: 10min | Serving: 2
20g organic chia seeds
160ml soya or coconut milk
1tsp organic vanilla powder
1/2 organic matcha powder
2tbsp fresh blueberries
Combine chia seeds with soya or coconut milk in the small jar. Add vanilla powder or matcha powder and mix well.
For the blueberries version blend the berries and milk in the food processor, combine the mixture with the chia seeds in the small jar.
Stir the mixture a few times to make sure the chia seeds are completely coated in milk to ensure proper absorption.
Close the jar and leave in the fridge for the night to let it set. Top up with blueberries, sprinkle with seeds or goji berries.
