INGREDIENTS (to make the base recipe)
2 tbsp chia seeds
150g milk ( any milk works, you can even mix it with water if you wish)
A sprinkle of cinnamon
A drop of honey or maple syrup to sweeten
Mix your milk with chia seeds. Allow to rest a little, give it another stir and add a sprinkle of cinnamon and a bit of honey or maple syrup to sweeten. Mix. Either leave in the fridge overnight or a minimum of an hour for the seeds to swell up.
Once the chia seeds swell up they have a gel-like consistency and they are ready to eat.
You’re now ready to mix them with some other ingredients to add texture and flavour and to make these post really appealing looking. Here are some ideas:
# Place your soaked up chia seeds in an empty jam jar or glass, spoon on top a layer of yoghurt, add some berries and a few chopped nuts for that extra crunch.
# Add some grated apple and yoghurt to your chia seeds. The apple with add some extra sweetness and will make it more juicy too.
# Consider stirring a good quality protein powder into your liquid when soaking your chia seeds. It’ll make it a great post-workout snack.
# Try adding raw cacao powder to your chia seeds when soaking and top with banana, oats, chopped nuts and yoghurt to serve.
- Chia pots are so versatile that the options pf creating different flavours are endless. They can be eaten as breakfast, as a pudding also and they’re also great as a healthy snack in between. Be creative!
- Keep your chia seeds in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days and use as and when you need.
