An easy recipe.
I have talked about my love for chia seeds before, and how I like to soak them in water for a quick, healthy snack. But lately I have swapped the water with almond milk, so that I can add some extra flavour to it, and makes it the perfect base for a breakfast meal.
For breakfast, my go-to is porridge, but sometimes you just need to switch things up and so – anytime I feel the need to – I opt for a good chia bowl (with basically the same things as I would have in porridge).
I like it because not only is just as healthy, but it’s cold, so if I’m wanting something that feels a bit more refreshing, this is great.
So these are the ingredients. I didn’t put a specific dosage/number for the cinnamon and syrup just because you can add it as you wish. You can definitely also swap the almond milk for any other type.
Again, regarding the granola and the fruit, you can have what you prefer, or none at all.
In fact, if you just want a quick snack, you can put the soaked chia seeds in a small pot and keep it refrigerated, so it’s ready as soon as you crave some!
I honestly love the taste of it on its own anyway, but if you do want to make yourself a nice breakfast, adding some toppings makes it more filling.
So just mix your liquids and powders together, so that you get the perfect base for your seeds to soak up.
Once you add the chia, let it rest for about 15 minutes. They should stick to each other, and make a thicker consistency, like a pudding.
Then simply add anything you like on top, and enjoy! ( ິ•ᆺ⃘• )ິฅ✧
