Berry Chia Breakfast Bowl

I’ll be honest with you, when I first attempted a chia pudding, I threw most of it away, it was disgusting. I had just used almond milk, a bit of yoghurt and chia seeds. As the chia forms a ‘gel’ when it is in liquid I just found the consistency too gross. Knowing the amazing qualities of chia seeds though, like boosting energy, reducing cholesterol and stabilising blood sugar, I knew I wanted to stick at it and make myself like it. Might sound quite silly but with the right recipe it tastes absolutely amazing and I’m not sure why I ever disliked it?!

Most things you are likely to have in and you can obviously vary it to suit you. I like to top mine with a nutty granola for a different texture and crunch.

  • Print

Ingredients

  • 300ml Nut Milk (I use cashew)

Method

  1. Put the milk, banana, syrup and berries in a blender and blitz until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture in a bowl and then stir in the chia seeds.
  3. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight – the chia ‘gel’ needs to form.
  4. Enjoy for breakfast as it is or you could add some nuts, nut butter or granola on top.

    Is it weird that I haven’t really heard of these seeds before. I don’t know alot about health foods. This looks pretty yummy though! :-) #sundaysweets

    This looks lovely. I l know what you mean about chia seeds though. The texture takes a little time to get used to!

    This is definitely my kind of breakfast, even the 4 year old gets chia in her porridge! I may be weird but I loved chia pud when I first tried it, strange texture I agree! Love nuts milks too. #tastytuesdays
