Chia Seed Porridge

Chia seed porridge…have you tried it yet? This is a great healthy way to start the day with a protein-packed punch. Just mix the Chia seeds and liquids the night before and leave until morning. The Chia seeds with have absorbed the liquids and have the consistency of porridge, then finish off the recipe in the morning and enjoy!

Serves 2
  • ¼ Cup Black Chia Seeds
  • ¼ Cup White Chia Seeds
  • 1 & ½ Cup Coconut Water
  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp Organic Soy Yoghurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 20 gms Coconut Flakes
  • 10 gms Nuts (Almonds, Pecans or Pistachios)

 

To make our super simple Chia Seed Pudding

Start the night before.

Mix the chia seeds, coconut water and ½ cup of still water in a bowl, cover and pop in the fridge over night.

The next morning bring the chia seed mix out and allow to stand at room temperature while you prepare the other ingredients.

Mix the milk, vanilla and yoghurt, then add this blended mix to your chia seed mix and stir thoroughly. You may want or need to add a little extra still water now to get the consistency that you like…these little seeds will absorb liquids almost exponentially.

Meanwhile in a dry frying pan gently toast the coconut flakes and your nuts.

When ready to serve spoon the chia pudding into a glass and top with a splodge of soy yoghurt and the toasted nuts.
