This is always a favourite on wellness retreats as a quick breakfast treat. Something light, but nutritious; perfect pick me up before a yoga class. The topping can be changed to reflect the season.
Mix 1 tablespoon of porridge oats with 3 tablespoon of chia seeds, add 1 cup of almond or oat milk and mix well.
Leave it soaking overnight. The tablespoon of oats make the pudding creamier then usual. If you are coeliac, you can leave the oats out.
Just before using add a tablespoon of date syrup and a pinch of cinnamon to sweeten it then mix well. You can still adjust if it’s too liquid or too thick by adding more milk or chia seeds to the mixture.
Serve with fresh fruit and lime zest.
Chi seeds are a great source of fibre, Omega 3 fatty acids, iron and calcium. They are also rich in antioxidants.
