I have lost count of how many people I have hooked on chia. I should have Lana’s Chia junkie group! Well, that makes me very happy and I hope that in case you still haven’t caught the chia grip now you will. There is no anti chia vaccine, it is so ridiculously good for you and the healthiest breakfast you can possibly have there is no other way but to get hooked on it. It is super easy to make and you can use any milk you like, but if I may suggest use rice coco milk. It is far the best combination I have ever come across. Last summer health food shops in Ibiza were scratching their heads as rice coco milk was suddenly flying off the shelves! Person responsible? Me. And my beloved Chia junkies. Rice coco milk is not raw, so if that is not an option go for almond or hemp milk. I wouldn’t suggest soya milk in general for chia as is too thick.
1⁄4 cup chia
3⁄4 cup milk of your choice
1 teaspoon raw cacao (if you want chocolate porridge)
So, it’s always 1 part chia and 3 parts liquid. For two people double it up or you can always prepare more and it’ll last in the fridge for couple of days. I sometime have it in the afternoon as a dessert.
Combine chia with your milk in a bowl and keep stirring until chia starts to gel.
Let it soak for 20 min at least, stirring occasionally. It is better if you make chia the night before as it really soaks liquid well. I do not add any sweetener to my chia as rice coco milk is already sweet. You can always sweeten it afterwards or with chopped sweeter fruit like banana. You can top your chia with lots of different things. Here is what I put on top of my chia; activated chopped almonds, fresh berries, hemp, goji berries, raw cacao nibs, bee pollen and drizzle of raw honey. Healthy heaven here I come!
