Prep 5mins Chilling 30mins (but overnight is fine too) Servings 1
2 tablespoons chia
1 ripe banana, mashed
2/3 cup milk (your choice – cashew, almond, soy, cow, coconut)
cinnamon or nutmeg to taste
Fresh fruit of your choice
Sprinkle of pepitas, sunflower seeds. almonds, cashews. You can also add a drizzle of rice malt syrup or maple syrup to sweeten it up.
Mix everything together in a bowl if you are eating at home or a jar if you want to take it to work with you.
Put in the fridge for a minimum 30 minutes (while you go for your morning walk) or make it before you go to bed ready for the next day.
Do not be alarmed if it looks a little brown the next morning – the banana is just doing its thing. If you prefer to not eat a ‘brown’ chia bowl don’t add the mashed banana until just before you eat.
This DIY version of a chia bowl is a cost effective, simple and nutritious way to start the day.
