Can you tell I'm on a chia kick? They are so filling and nutritious, and make the perfect breakfast!
Chia seeds are such a valuable addition to one's diet, it is important that we have a variety of recipes to use them! Fortunately, they are fairly tasteless and therefore very versatile. And remember, 1 ounce of chia seeds (about 3 tablespoons) covers nearly 20% of your calcium need for the day!
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 1/2 cup almond, soaked overnight
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 T agave nectar
- 3 T cacao powder
- 1 T bee pollen
- 1 T maca powder
- 4 T chia seeds
- Blend the almonds and water together to make almond milk. Strain the liquid through a nut milk bag
, and discard the pulp.
- Rinse the blender and place the almond milk back in it, along with all the other ingredients except for chia seeds. Blend until smooth.
- Place 2 T of chia seeds in 2 cups, and add half the cacao almond milk. Stir well to prevent the seeds from clumping, and add the rest of the liquid. Stir again. Drink right away, or set aside for about 20 minutes for the liquid to thicken (you will have a pudding consistency).
