If you’re looking for a breakfast idea that packs a nutritional punch this chia porridge is an excellent idea. The omega 3 fatty acid content and complete amino acid profile of chia, as well as their high fiber content, makes them incredibly nourishing and satisfying. This recipe also contains a generous serving of antioxidants with a handful each of goji berries, blueberries, and cacao nibs as well as superfood maca for hormone regulation. Breakfast doesn’t get much better than this!

 Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry chia seeds
  • 3 cups fresh hemp milk
  • 5 tablespoons coconut palm nectar, yacon syrup or agave
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 2 fresh vanilla beans, scraped
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • ¼ cup Goji berries, soaked 10 minutes & drained
  • ¼ cup organic blueberries
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs
  • 1 ripe large banana, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder (optional)

In a mixing bowl, combine the dry chia seeds and hemp milk. Stir vigorously to cover all the chia seeds with milk. Stir every 5 minutes to prevent clumping. Add all remaining ingredients and stir until well incorporated. The porridge will thicken and reach its maximum volume in 15-20 minutes. Keeps for up to 5 days in a sealed container in the fridge.
