Chia Pots are a great way to put a spring in your step in the morning time. They are packed with protein, fibre and omega 3 fatty acids. By adding a tablespoon of chia seeds you can increase your protein intake on a daily basis. Chia seeds contain soluble and insoluble fiber which is great for digestion and regularity. Chia pots have a rice pudding consistency. You will need to leave them in fridge overnight or at least 6 hours. You can add your toppings of your choice when they have set.

Ingredients

4 tablespoons Chia Seeds (2 tbsp. in each pot)

¼ cup Coconut Water, in each pot

¼ cup Homemade Almond Milk or Milk of choice (store-bought will work), in each pot

1 teaspoon Vanilla Powder (1/2 teaspoon in each pot)

2 teaspoons Rice Syrup, 1 teaspoon in each pot

Method

Add all the ingredients to your pots and stir the mixture with a small spoon until combined. Pop in the fridge overnight.

Next morning give it a little stir before devouring, sprinkle with your favourite toppings.
