CHIA PORRIDGE TWO WAYS
What’s great about it:
Oats are one of the healthiest breakfasts you can eat, yet variety is also key! Here is a summer version of a breakfast pudding to be enjoyed on an early morning. Make it tonight, let it set and grab a spoonful in the morning. Best of all, place the mixture into jars the night before and enjoy at work or on your daily commute.
Serves 2 | Prep time 10 minutes | Cook time 10 minutes
3 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup low fat milk, or low fat coconut milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 apple, grated
1/2 banana, mashed
30g walnuts, roughly chopped
Or 1 cup of canned fruit in natural juice
PLACE chia seeds in a bowl, add warm water and allow to stand for at least 30 minutes, mix in milk, cinnamon and leave in refrigerator overnight. Chia seeds will swell.
SERVE cold with fresh fruit and sprinkle of nuts and yoghurt, or
SERVE hot, cooking in a microwave for 1 minute with canned fruit and yoghurt.
