Low GI Sweet Vanilla Chia Seed Breakfast

Posted March 23rd, 2014 by Mimi

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.

You'll need:

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

Then just:

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 :)
