This delicious recipe is best to make the night before, but can also be done in the morning. Chia is a fantastic and super healthy seed with loads of protein, fiber and healthy fatty acids (omega 3). The porridge is a super breakfast as it gives you the energy boost you need in the morning to take on the new day. It’s also perfect to put in a container and bring with you if you are going on a trip, eat breakfast at school/work or something like that. As the chia seeds themselves don’t taste that much, we have added some bananas, kiwi, maple syrup and cinnamon to sweeten the taste.
Chia porridge (1 serving):
- 3 tbs chia seeds
- 3 tbs oat milk (you can also use coconut milk or other dairy free milk)
- 6 tbs water
- 1 banana
- 1 kiwi
- 1 handful raspberries
- 1 tbs maple syrup
- Homemade granola (optional, but really good)
Mix the chia seeds with the liquids. Add maple syrup and half a banana, which you mash into the porridge. Add cinnamon. Let it set in the fridge over night or for as long as you have time to wait for. Chop the rest of the banana and the in small bites, and add them to the porridge together with the berries and granola. Breakfast could not be made much easier than this!
