Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooothhhhh and creamy & tastes so so delicious... Of course you have to try whilst you make it, you'd be crazy not to! haha.

 

Make your chia pudding your breakfast!

You may need something a bit more substantial to fill your morning tummy rumbles, so here are some ways to make your chia cup a main meal!

  • Add 1 serving of protein powder (a natural or organic whey or pea protein powder) into your chia, coconut milk mixture.

  • Sprinkle your choice of flavour (mango, berry, chocolate, passionfruit) with a natural or baked granola or muesli, nuts (activated if possible), seeds (toasted or fresh), activated buckwheat or cooked (but cooled quinoa). 

  • If you just want your chia pudding as is or as a sncak size, but are still hungry- eat a boiled egg afterwards!

 

Experiment, change up the flavours, swap from cacao to carob, switch around your milk of choice, use your favourite fruit or flavour! Pumpkin is definately on my list!

 

Enjoy, enjoy! If  you have any questions or suggestions you can contact me HERE.
