I mean, would you look at that…

 – Vey popular for its health benefits  –

CHIA SEEDS; full of fiber, protein, omega 3 fatty acids and various micronutrients, they are among the most nutritious foods out there.

FRUIT; you can choose to add any type of fruit really with these chia bowls. Fruits are, as you all well know, very good for the health also.

SOJA MILK; I tend to use soja milk (or coconut milk/almond milk) simply as digesting dairy can sometimes be troublesome for me. So soja is one of many healthy alternatives.

CHOC CHIPS (for the naughty ones); nothing really healthy here i must admit but it just tastes too good.


Recipe used in photo:

You will need:

  • Chia seeds
  • Soja milk (or milk of your own preference)
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar (or maple syrup maybe?)
  • Raspberries (i buy them frozen)
  • Banana
  • Chocolate chips

I’m afraid i don’t really do quantities, preferences may differ when it comes to thick, runny, more fruit, less fruit etc.

Preparation:

As mentioned above, depending on the thickness you wish to obtain, you may want to add more or fewer chia seeds.

  • Pour soja milk into bowl, add chia seeds, vanilla sugar and stir. Let it set for 30 seconds, then stir again. Repeat this several times.
  • Keep cool in fridge overnight (personally sometimes I’m just so impatient I wham it in the freezer or fridge and dig into it a couple of hours on).
  • Take out of fridge and make sure the mixture has set. Meaning that it is no longer liquid and the chia seeds have well absorbed the milk and now form a strong gue.
  • Chop up your fruit into the shapes and sizes of your liking and set on top. Add on the chocolate chips (or any extra ingredients of your liking).
