If you’re looking for a tasty breakfast that is going to fuel you until lunch time and which is quick enough to throw together, than look no further than a chia porridge.
You need to make the chia the night before and the next day, all you have to do is build it. It will take no longer than waiting for the kettle to boil for that morning cup of tea.
Apart from keeping you full, I’m loading this beauty with a superfoods boost by using Nature’s Way Super Greens + Cacao powder. Like the other products in the Super Greens range which I love, this one is full of all the good things you would expect from a greens powder, & also contains probiotics and vegan protein. I also love it because it has no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
I love cacao! Apart from being delicious, it is also rich in magnesium which is important to keep the heart healthy, as well as building strong muscles and bones, making it perfect for those of us who are big fitness nerds.
You can find the Nature’s Way Super Greens + Cacao at Woolworths, Coles, Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist and Health365. Highly recommend. It’s super versatile so if you can’t be bothered making a chia porridge, you have the option of adding it to your smoothie, or just mixing it with water or milk of your choice. Although I know what I prefer 😉
Superfood Chocolate Chia Parfait
2 TBS chia seeds
3/4 cup of milk of choice (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
1 TBS raw cacao powder
2 tsp of Nature’s Way Super Greens + Cacao
1/4 cup of muesli of choice (I make my own, recipe for that later)
1/2 cup yoghurt of choice (I used coconut)
1 cup of strawberries or whatever fruit you like
4 mint leaves
In a glass jar with tight fitting lid, add all the ingredients and shake really well to incorporate all of the ingredients. Leave to sit for about 3 minutes and shake again. Repeat this process a few times, and then place in the fridge overnight.
The next morning, all you have to do is layer up your add-ons and the chia in whichever way you fancy.
I would love to see your Superfood Chia creations so don’t forget to tag @onehungrymami #onehungrymami so that I can see what you’re up to and get some inspiration.
