This was probably up there with one of my most exciting food moments because I have spent months looking at all the wonderful pictures on Instagram of Chia bowls, smoothies, parfaits etc. Finally I decided to give it a try! Firstly let me say I forgot that I told myself I would soak my chia seeds in coconut milk instead of almond milk but I winged it towards the end and the results came out pretty good. I love when I eat healthy, my mind does not play the guilt trip game it does when I eat bad AND overdo it. Another benefit is not being bloated and having the energy boost I need to carry out my day – I am terrible when it comes to mornings.
Okay, so less yapping and more info on this. I will definitely be doing more different types in future.
3 Tbspn Chia seeds
250ml unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tspn vanilla
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tspn hemp seeds
1 heaped tspn desicated coconut
6 raw almonds
2 tspn honey
In a blender combine almond milk, vanilla and 1/2 cup of raspberries. Add you chia seeds and soak overnight in the fridge. (That is all the hard work done, lol)
The following morning pour your overnight chia seed mixture in your bowl. Be as fancy and as creative as you wish. I layered my fruits and sprinkled my hemp seeds over and layered the coconut and almonds (yes they are floating, surprisingly). Then I drizzled my honey over it. I suggested 2 tspns but it’s really up to you what your sweetness preference is.
Easy, healthy morning breakfast. I hope you like it!
