Apple & cinnamon chia pudding

Apple & Cinnamon Chia pudding: a speedy breakfast option!

Are you always in a rush in the morning? Do you often forget to eat breakfast or grab a snack on the go? Well, we have a solution… an apple and cinnamon chia pudding!

Chia seeds are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium, protein and are a great source of fibre. When mixed with liquid, chia seeds expand and swell into a gel like substance, providing a delicious, nutritious and filling ‘pudding’. Depending on your time frame, this recipe can be made in the morning or the night before, ready to eat or take on the move.

Serves 1:

Ingredients:

  • 240ml almond milk (or alternative if you prefer)
  • 1 apple, peeled and deseeded
  • 2 pitted dates
  • 1tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Optional toppings: honey, goji berries, chopped fruit, fresh berries, cacao nibs, coconut flakes etc.

Method:

Blend all the ingredients together, apart from the chia seeds. Once blended, add in the chia seeds, stirring continuously for 2 minutes to prevent the seeds clumping together. Leave to set for at least 15 minutes or overnight. Serve with your preferred toppings and enjoy!
