You’d like to eat a healthy, balanced breakfast, but the idea of having to get up early to make it puts you off?
Then you should try our delicious Chia Bowl recipe – it has all the goodness of a healthy breakfast and you can make it in next to no time. And you are guaranteed an energy boost to keep you going for the rest of the day!
An extremely popular breakfast at the moment, many different Chia Bowl recipes are available on social media. You can keep on varying your chia seed pudding and try whatever you fancy. Since chia seeds have a neutral taste, you can combine them with all sorts of other foodstuffs.
For 2 portions you’ll need:
- 4 tablespoons chia seeds
- 300 ml plant-based milk: almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, hazelnut milk etc.
- 1 tablespoon honey / maple syrup
- Fresh fruit: strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, banana, blueberries, apple etc. Fresh fruit will give your bowl flavour. You can use whatever combination takes your fancy, but try to use local, seasonal fruit as much as you can to enjoy their taste and freshness.
- Nuts: walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds, etc; here again you are free to be as inventive as you wish.
If you prefer bolder flavours, you can add spices, goji berries and so on … once again nothing is restricted, you can use whatever you want.
Once chia seeds come into contact with liquid, they begin to swell up. Ideally you should start making up your bowl the night before.
Sprinkle your chia seeds into your plant-based milk and stir for 2 minutes. Add a tablespoonful of honey or maple syrup. Cover the mixture and leave overnight in the fridge.
In the morning, all you have to do is wash and chop up your fruit. Then add your fruit and nuts to the chia seed mixture.
Your bowl is ready to eat. Bon appétit!
