Overnight Chia Breakfast Pudding (serves 1)

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • tiny splash pure vanilla extract
  • 1 small banana
  • ½ cup berries of choice (frozen or fresh)
  • small handful of nuts of choice (slivered almonds, pecans or macadamia nuts)

Method

  1. Stir together chia, coconut milk, water and vanilla. Let sit for 3-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, slice banana into small, bite-sized, chunks.
  3. Give chia mixture one more stir (this second stir is important!) and poke the chunks of banana and berries into pudding so they are well covered. This will prevent them from browning overnight.
  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  5. In the morning, top with sliced almonds, pecans or macadamia nuts for a yummy, on-the-go breakfast option!
