Chia seeds are a high energy food and, due to their protein content, help to stabilise blood sugar whilst maintaining energy levels, leaving you feeling fuller for longer. They contain omega-3 fatty acids and fibre as well as many vitamins and minerals particularly calcium, magnesium and potassium.
180ml coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
1½ tbsp chia seeds
¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
1 passion fruit
2 tbsps natural yoghurt (optional)
1 tbps flaked almonds
Mix the almond milk with the vanilla and chia seeds and stir well. Pour into a bowl and fridge overnight.
Serve with yoghurt, raspberries, passion fruit and almonds
Spoon the mixture into a bowl (or mason jar if you are taking it to the office).
* Keep in the fridge and use within 3 days. Soaked chia seeds can be easily added to smoothies or be ready to add to porridge
** Peaches and fresh figs work really well with this recipe when they are in season
