Hey foodies, here's some magic for your morning! I hope you share the same love for breakfasts as me, but breakfasts are honestly what I sleep for. It's my favourite meal to look forward to! And, of course, always dreaming of a creamy dreamy chia seed pudding. This recipe is also wholesome and healthy giving you so much energy to start the day!
On a note, Jude and I's meals aren't all vegan, as many do ask us! But I'd say this dish is one of the best morning dishes to get creative with and treat yourself to it's natural sweetness, protein filled goodness and wholesome nature. You may need to get used to the texture if you're new to eating chia seeds!
Simple Seed Pudding Recipe
simple, vegan, dairy-free breakfast recipe
First, add the chia seeds, almond milk, agave syrup, cinnamon, cocoa powder (optional, if you want to make it chocolate-y). Whisk together, then put the bowl in the fridge, soak for at least 2 hours to overnight. It's great to do this step the night before, and it can also last in the fridge for a couple of days!
Once your pudding is ready, add your choice of fruit.
Strawberries... (Personal preference)
Sprinkle some coconut flakes!
Add granola clusters!
One thing, if you are vegan and buying granola clusters from a store, double check the ingredients, or you can also make it yourself. (Hm, an idea for a new future recipe)
These clusters are the best if you want to have something crunchy!
Add some flax for more goodness all in one bowl. Flax is a great source of Omega-3, fiber and protein.
Here, you can also add some pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of many minerals; especially magnesium and copper. And it's an amazing source of protein!
Now, serve with a side of fruits!
