I have a thing for these tiny seeds and blueberries, for a number of reasons – to name a few:
Chia seeds: did you know that ‘chia’ is the Mayan word for ‘strength’? They are loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, manganese and magnesium, phosphorus, antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids! So you have an energy and nutrient packed gem in your hands!
Blueberries: my favourite berries! Packed with vitamin c and k and considered the king of antioxidant foods, they have so many health benefits you simply need to have them in your daily diet!
So, combined these 2 ingredients, gives you a pretty good start to your day or serves as a really good, low calories high energy snack in between meals.
3 tbsp chia seeds
a handful of frozen or fresh blueberries
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
a few drops vanilla essence
plant based milk of your choice
anything you fancy for topping (granola, coconut flakes, nuts, choco chips etc)
Simply mix all ingredients together and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning add your toppings and enjoy!
