Hailed as a super food with good reason, Chia seeds are a great source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, loaded with antioxidants and high in fibre.
If you like the texture of tapioca, this is a tasty and nutricious breakfast option that only takes a minute or so to make before you go to bed. Pop it in the fridge and it’s ready to eat in the morning. Serve with your favourite fruit and nuts and it will keep you satiated all morning.
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 2 cups coconut milk (you can use almond milk if you prefer but I find the coconut milk gives a better flavour)
- Half a cup of chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of stevia (equivalent to one heaped teaspoon of sugar) OPTIONAL
Mix ingredients together well, pop in the fridge overnight (around 8 hours is good but anything over 6 is ok).
Serve topped with your favourite fruit and activated nuts (hazelnuts and almonds work well).
