temp-post-image

Ingredients:
2T Chia seeds
1/4 - 1/2 cup water/rice milk/nut or seed milk
1 sliced banana (optional)
Handful of seasonal berries
Pinch Himalayan pink salt
Drizzle of honey or maple syrup

Procedure:
In a medium size bowl, add the chia seeds then the desired nut or seed milk. Let it sit for 5 - 8 minutes. Stirring occasionally as the chia seeds will gel up and thicken into a porridge consistency.
Stir and add salt.
Garnish with berries and drizzle with honey or maple syrup. Enjoy!
Nutritional Note:
Chia seeds are high in fibre, protein and in omega 3s which is great for brain development.
Chia seeds are filling and can act as an appetite suppressant.
This is great for breakfast or a quick pick-me-up snack any time of day. (I have seen my daughter also enjoying it at night while burning the midnight oil!)
If enjoying at night, leave out the fruits as they should not be consumed so late at night.
