I made this for breakfast on Saturday morning and it was fabulous! Chia seeds are little health bombs – omega 3, calcium, manganese, phosphorus – you name it, the chia seed has got it:) This breakfast comes together instantly in your blender and I topped it with dried goji berries, chopped up dried figs and raw cacao nibs for extra goodness! As I tucked into my gorgeous breakfast, I made sure to drizzle it with some delicious homemade almond milk.
I only used 3 dates to sweeten my chia mixture. It wasn’t very sweet at all, but I liked it like that since my toppings of figs and berries were pretty sweet. If you are not putting a sweet topping on, feel free to add either more dates or drizzle with your sweetener of choice.
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 2/3 cup water
- 3 dates (pits removed)
- pinch salt
- Topped with: dried goji berries, dried figs and cacao nibs (use your imagination!)
- Feel free to drizzle with honey/agave/maple syrup if extra sweetness is required.
- almond milk for serving
Place chia seeds, water, dates and salt into a blender and blend for a minute or two. Taste and add anything you fancy to the original chia mix. I left it as is and scooped it into a glass. The chia mixture thickens as it stands to form a lovely goop:) Top with yummy sweet superfoods and breakfast it served!
