Mixed Berry Chia Porridge
Inspiration for this weekend's Paleo for Weight Loss Cooking School a delicious and easy to digest Chia seed porridge perfect for Spring as we cross over to the warmer weather...
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 & 1/2 cups of almond milk - I use pure harvest activated almond milk https://pureharvest.com.au/products/activated-almond-milk/
1/2 cup coconut cream
1 & 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen mixed organic berries
2 tsp natural vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Honey or Maple syrup to sweeten (if desired)
Combine almond milk, coconut cream and chia seeds in a bowl. Whisk well and allow to sit for 20-30mins mixing occasionally so chia seeds don't clump together. Then place in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight. Add berries, vanilla, sweetner and a pinch of salt.
I make this in the afternoon if I want to serve as a cold dessert with fresh berries (needs to sit in fridge for at least 2hrs). But mostly I make it at night with frozen berries for breakfast porridge - I add the frozen berries and all other ingredients before placing in the fridge. To warm in the morning, gently heat on a low heat for 5-10mins.
