Need an energy boost in the morning? Chia is known for its energy giving and sustaining properties. In fact it was used by the messenger runners of ancient Native American cultures of the southwest for prolonged endurance. If carrying a small sachet of seeds with you throughout the day doesn’t appeal, try out this delicious chia pudding bowl recipe instead topped with almond slivers and juicy berries.
- 2 tbsp white chia seeds
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup golden raspberries
- 1 whole strawberry
- 1 tbsp sliced almonds
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1. In a bowl combine chia seeds with almond milk stir and let sit for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid clumping.
2. Once chia seeds have thickened add remaining ingredients.
3. Depending on your taste buds you may want to add sweetener, spices, cacao powder, dried fruits, seeds, or nuts. Get creative with your CHI-a!
