Chia Pudding

I have this most mornings for breakfast topped with a large spoonful of coconut yoghurt (but a full fat live dairy yoghurt would be good if you tolerate dairy) and a handful of nuts, coconut chips, seeds and berries.


Ingredients (2/3 servings)


4 heaped tbsp chia seeds

4 heaped tbsp ground flax/linseed

1 heaped tsp raw cacao powder and/or cinnamon

30g protein powder (optional*)

750 ml milk (dairy or unsweetened alternative)



Method


Mix all ingredients together in a dish you can easily store in the fridge. Leave for 5 minutes, then stir every 5 mins for approximately 15 mins. It will thicken a lot as the milk is absorbed by the seeds, so it’s important to keep stirring occasionally during this time and adding more milk if needed.


Leave covered in the fridge overnight (or for up to 3 days).

*I use a hemp protein powder or Nuzest clean natural flavour, but you can use any good quality protein powder to increase the protein content of your breakfast.
