Strawberry Chia Pud
7 Tbsp Chia seeds
2 Tbsp Strawberry powder, organic**
1 Tbsp Maple syrup
1 Cup Almond or non-dairy milk
½ Cup Water
1 tsp Vanilla (optional flavouring)
1 Tbsp Carob (optional flavouring)
**Organic Strawberry powder is a 'must-have', if you have kids that like strawberries but you are aware of how many chemicals conventional strawberries are subjected to and don't want to spend so much money on buying fresh organic ones. You can order it from Austral Herbs (at the time of writing). Use it to make strawberry mylk, strawberry hot chocolate, smoothies, pancakes, muffins, cake icing - anything strawberry - the REAL way. Alternatively, you can order from LuvaBerry based near the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Mix all ingredients straight into the container you will store it in, in the fridge. A glass container or jar with a lid of at least 3 Cups in volume will be best.
Stir (or shake if the lid seals well enough) and let it sit for at least 20 minutes in the fridge, or overnight so it's ready for breakfast.
Enjoy with coconut yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, warm porridge, cereal, or soaked raw oats.
This on is for you kids! You can make a delicious layered breakfast for the whole family all by yourself. I can't wait for you taste this - and I would LOVE to see you creations by sharing a photo on my facebook page!
If you're ordering strawberry powder, you might as well get some Rosehip powder while you're at it. This is a SUPER power form of vitamin C and so many other incredibly beneficial nutrients that tastes pretty good and can be snuck in everywhere!
Try different flavourings with the suggestions above or get creative and make up your own.
Make a sweeter version and have as Chia Jam by adding more maple syrup and less mylk. Store in tiny containers in the freezer so you can take out only enough to last 1 week in the fridge at a time. It will need to get eaten with the week.
