For those of you that don’t ‘do’ breakfast, or those looking for a way to increase fibre, calcium and protein in one hit! Not just a breakfast option either, consider this also for an easy portable lunch.
This is an example of a ‘yoghurt bowl’. You will see what I mean when you google this term. Yoghurt bowls are basically a mixture of fruit/nuts/seeds, yoghurt and sometimes grains, mixed together. Very similar to what most of us would consider a typical breakfast, but perhaps more focused on the ‘toppings’ rather than the cereal or grains usually hidden underneath.
Chia seeds are a fantastic source of fibre and healthy fats, and when left to soak overnight – swell up from their prior ‘jam-seed’ like form to a delicious and FILLING food.
Enjoy the recipe below (thanks to https://www.dewinkel.co.nz/garden-to-table/thick-creamy-chia-pudding/), OR try some of your own variations. Where possible, look for a natural or a greek yoghurt (preferable without cream on the ingredients list), and a high fibre cereal such as oats or an untoasted muesli.
1 1/2 cups milk (plant or animal based will do)
1 Tbsp Honey
1/3 cup Chia seeds
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 cup De Winkel All Natural yoghurt
- Mix together all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside in the refrigerator overnight, and whisk in the morning to combine.
- Divide between 2 serving glasses and top with more De Winkel yoghurt, honey and other desired toppings
