I took a fancy to those Chia Pods recently.
They're such a quick and delicious breakfast, and so healthy to boot. The texture of the seeds reminds me a little of Sago or Tapoica which we love, but sort of crunchy.
But at nearly $4 each for the Chia Pods, a bit expensive for every day for a good SSer :)
So I've come up with my own version. Maybe if you're a Chia Pudding fan, you'd like to add your recipe too.
This makes almost a weeks worth of breakfasts for me.
1 cup Coconut Juice or Coconut Water
1 cup Greek Yoghurt
3 dessertspoons Rice Malt Syrup
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste or 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup White Chia Seeds
Fresh fruit of your choice to serve
Whisk together the Coconut Juice, Yoghurt, Rice Malt Syrup and Vanilla. Add the chia seeds and whisk well.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, give the mixture a stir and spoon into a bowl or glass. Add some fresh berries, melon, kiwi fruit or whatever takes your fancy. Drizzle a little more Rice Malt Syrup over the top if you wish.
I find a little of Chia breakfast pudding goes a long way. A 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of the Chia pudding and some fruit is a great way to start the day. You won't be hungry for hours :)
