Chia – so easy to make, underrated, this breakfast ought to be on every breakfast menu in the world. Everyone would benefit from consuming this at least once per week. Versatile – any fruit will compliment chia together with non dairy milk.
Use chia as a power breakfast, pop it into your smoothies, make delicious desserts and, use chia in place egg.
50 grams chia (soak in boiled water)
3 x 250ml almond milk
2 bananas (sliced)
6 large strawberries (quartered)
9 raspberries (whole)
Add your chia to a bowl together with boiled water. Chia grows to about 3-4 times it’s size, so add two x 250ml water first, then add more as you require and allow to soak for a couple of minutes. You will end up with a ‘gooey’ texture.
Whilst that is happening – prepare your fruit, and heat up your almond milk on a low temperature.
Add your chia mix to your milk and stir until smooth and desired temperature. Serve to your breakfast bowls and garnish with your choice of fruit. A final drizzle of coconut nectar to finish off and enjoy!
P.S. – Please note that the consistency of your breakfast is a personal choice, should you wish for your bowl of chia to be thicker in consistency, then add less milk or more chia to the mix. This for me is just perfect!
