Hello and welcome back to my little series “How-to”. Today I would like to share a very simple breakfast idea that is healthy, hearty and keeps your stomach filled for a couple of hours so you won’t have the morning cravings. I mix my breakfasts up because having the same every morning is boring right? Here is the recipe:
Serves 1 portion
15 minPrep Time
15 minTotal Time
- 3-4 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of coconut milk/almond milk/hemp milk/water/regular milk
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds
- maple sirup/honey/agave syrup
- fruit/nuts as desired
- Soak the chia seeds in your choice of milk or water for at least 10-15 minutes. If this is too much chia pudding in the end you can easily store it in the fridge for up to 4 days in a sealed container. Now add the rest of the ingredient. I used banana, grinded apple, walnuts, grapes, and cinnamon. I love maple syrup and still had some from Canada so I sweetened my chia pudding with it.
Your chia pudding should look like this:
Now go crazy adding fruit and nuts. I chose grapes, an overripe banana (this is why I add cinnamon because it makes the banana easier to digest. Did you know that a banana is in your system for up to 70 hours and difficult to digest?!) I also added pieces of walnuts, maple sirup, hemp and flax seeds. The Chia pudding itself is not sweet and me having a bit of a sweet tooth need to add some sugar. Again, whatever you prefer. Done!
Let me know if you try it and what ingredients you added. Thank you for reading.
