I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it looked like a great, quick breakfast. My issue with breakfast is that when I eat it, I'm always hungry only a couple of hours later. Chia, I am happy to say, actually fills me up quite well.
You can make this the night before which is especially great for those who are time poor in the mornings.
I found this a little weird in texture. Kind of slimy. Don't let it put you off though, with some blueberries and perhaps toasted muesli or toasted coconut flakes, this will make the texture a little more interesting. Give it a go. Let me know how you go below. :)
3-4 tablespoons of chia (either white or black, it doesn't matter)
3/4 cup almond milk or light milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1-2 teaspoons of honey or maple syrup
Blueberries to top
Mix up all the ingredients except blueberries in a container that you can seal. Put it in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.
When ready to eat, take it out, stir, and spoon into a bowl, ramekin or cup. Top with blueberries (and other desired toppings).
You can add more milk if you want a more soupy consistency. You can also use more or less honey/maple syrup to sweeten it to your tastes.
I used 4 tablespoons of chia and it was a thick consistency - almost pudding like.
My 3 year old also tried some and liked it so if you have kids, it might be a great way to get some awesome nutrients into them!
