Raw Chia Breakfast Cup

| Breakfast

IMG_4273_edited-1IMG_4272_edited-1IMG_4276_edited-1I 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

Instructions

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!

Feel the goodness seep into your beautiful body

    You think the “goopie” texture will be my thing? Like Oats or chewy?

      It’s not gross goopy. Possibly “goopy” isn’t quite the right word. It is a lovely texture. The only way to know for sure is to try it:)
