Chia Porridge - Breakfast in Minutes!

6 years ago

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.

Chia Porridge Ingredients

To make hemp milkblend the water and the hemp seeds in a blender or a magic bullet for about 20 seconds.

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.

Final Notes:

  • 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.
  • Recipe tasted and looked best after resting for 30 minutes. The chia seeds continue to expand and make the texture more like traditional porridge.
  • Check out Honest to GoodnessSimply Raw and Living Earth Beauty for a few more takes on Chia Seed Porridge.
  • You can replace hemp milk with almond or regular milk.
  • Other dried fruits to try include dates, figs, apricots or the very tasty, nutritious goji berries.
