One morning I wanted something in between oatmeal and chia seed pudding. I ended up throwing a few things in a blender and discovered this. It was perfectly creamy, warming with spice, and could be adjusted as needed. I have also added oats in for a chewier texture but typically stick to the recipe as follows. This is also great to pop in your blender the night before and refrigerate overnight. Then, in the morning, all you have to do is blend and serve! I would also imagine it would hold well if blended then refrigerated.
Raw Chia Porridge
Always creamy, quick, and delicious!
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1-2 dates, pitted
- 1/4-1/2 cup milk of choice
- Handful of frozen berries
- Dash of maple syrup
- 1 tsp or more of cinnamon/allspice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Step 1 In a blender combine all of the ingredients. Depending on how thick you want the porridge, add more or less milk, and adjust spices to taste. Serve in a bowl and top with peanut butter, maple syrup, and fresh fruit.
This has been my ultimate breakfast as of late because Chicago is experiencing a heat dome. The heat index is usually in the 100s (who wants to go outside in that?!). It’s been sweltering daily which means all I want are acai bowls and all of the iced tea. What’s your favorite easy breakfast?
