Chia Seed Porridge – Breakfast in minutes!

You’ve tried having a Chia pet. Now try Chia Porridge. No kidding.

This recipe makes 2 portions and can be kept in the refrigerator to be consumed the following day. I can personally vouch for feeling satiated and full of energy all morning. It makes a light, but satisfying breakfast. Keep it in mind for hiking or camping forays as these foods do well without refrigeration for a while.

Add all other ingredients, tasting for sweetness to see if maple syrup is needed. I find it sweet enough with the fresh and dried fruit.

  • Thanks to my brother Eric for giving me this recipe, demonstrating how easy it is to make and for being a nutritional watchdog. He manages to eat healthy and always considers what’s best for the environment.

      I’m still loving it! Gotta stock up on hemp seeds. My sister told me to try sesame milk- maybe a tablespoon of sesame to 1 cup of water. Supposedly very calcium rich. Who knew?
