January and February can be the most difficult months for many, so what better breakfast to perk us up than a chocolate delight?! Truly virtuous and delicious, chia puddings are a great way to start the day. Super quick, super healthy and super tasty…what more could you want?
And of course, you could have them for snacks or puds too!
Here’s something I throw together (and sometimes in a jam jar if I’m rushing out the door) on many a morning.
3 to 4 tbsp chia seeds
200 to 250 ml almond or coconut milk
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 dessertspoon raw cacao (or coco powder, but cacao has more nutrients)
1tsp maple syrup
some walnuts on top for texture
Mix all the ingredients except the walnuts and leave for at least 15 minutes. The chia seeds will expand and soak up the liquid.
This breakfast is rich in omega 3 fats, protein and plenty of minerals and B vitamins. This should help to keep cravings at bay and provide you with great energy for your day.
