I’ve never dabbled with the chia seed craze but a friend at work shared this super simple recipe that I love. She even brought some into work for a few of us to try to sell us and it’s so delicious! It’s easy to make but you need to let it set over night in the fridge. Here’s the skinny on what you need and what to do:
- 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
- 2 T chia seeds
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 2-3 t agave nectar syrup
- Dash of cinnamon (I actually didn’t have cinnamon so I substituted with ground ginger)
- Wisk or shake in mason jar make sure that all seeds and syrup is incorporated
- Refrigerate overnight
- Eat with berries and chopped raw almonds if preferred
After it set overnight, I added fresh raspberries. It’s so tasty and filling. The chia seeds expand and get soft like boba tea and it’s delightful. I share this info though in case you are a texture person who does not prefer tapioca type textures 🙂
The mason jar made it really easy for me to transport. I never usually have time to eat at home in the morning but was able to eat once I got to work.
Start your week off healthy and strong – enjoy!
