Quick oats are great for breakfast but so is chia seed pudding. I never would have thought that chia seeds were a viable breakfast food, but after learning more about them I realized they are nutrient dense and a quick and delicious breakfast meal. To learn more about the benefits of this amazing seed read our chia seed article.

Chia seeds are packed with calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, omega 3 and fibre. 2 tbsp of chia seeds contains about 5 grams of protein, adding nut butter or some collagen protein to your breakfast bowl is a great way to boost the protein levels and provide a more balanced and filling meal. However, even without any additional protein, the fibre and fat content in chia seeds makes them a wonderfully filling meal. The addition of acai powder provides a great antioxidant boost as well as a nice amount of beta-carotene and brilliant purple colour.

The best thing about a chia bowl is that you can make it ahead of time, find a large jar and make your acai chia bowl base and you can keep it in your fridge for about a week. Take out a few scoops in the morning for breakfast or for a snack and you have an amazing, delicious and nutrient dense meal to go.

Ingredients

Simple Chia Pudding

  • 1/3 cup white chia seeds organic
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk or other nut milk
  • 2 tbsp acai powder
  • pint Himalayan pink salt

Acai Chia Breakfast Bowl

  • 1/2 banana sliced
  • 1-2 scoops collagen or vegan protein – optional
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup or raw local honey
  • 1/2 cup berries blueberries and raspberries
  • sprinkle bee pollen

Instructions

  • In a glass jar add all the ingredients for the chia seed pudding. Stir to make sure that no chia seeds are stuck to the bottom. Cover with a lid and shake a few times. Store in the fridge for at least five hours, or preferably overnight. 
  • In the morning for your acai breakfast bowl, adding in some extra protein such as grass-fed collagen or vegan protein is a great way to get some more benefit from your bowl. I like to top it off with fresh fruit, and a bit of honey for sweetness.
