Chia Porridge – chocolate and coconut

WINNER ! BANTING RECIPE ! DAIRY FREE!

Oh my wonderful Chai Seed discovery happiness!!!! I haven’t been loving breakfasts without yoghurt, and I’ve been on the search for some alternatives that are still yummy (coconut yoghurt was good). Then I came across chai seeds. They are amazing little balls of health http://authoritynutrition.com/11-proven-health-benefits-of-chia-seeds/ and this morning’s breakfast was more like dessert than breakfast. WIN!!!

You can emit the coco if you want a plain porridge, maybe add some cinnamon and a bit more vanilla; make a berry porridge pureeing a few berries and throwing them into the mix before you refrigerate
