You’ve tried having a Chia pet. Now try Chia Porridge. No kidding! This recipe makes 2 portions and can be kept in the refrigerator to be consumed the following day. This power breakfast will leave you feeling satiated and full of energy all morning. It makes a light, but satisfying breakfast. Keep it in mind for hiking or camping forays as these foods do well without refrigeration for a while.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup
    water, hot or cold
  • 1/4 Cup
    hemp seeds
  • 3 Tablespoons
    chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon
    ground flaxseeds
  • 1 Cup
    fresh fruit, cut up blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, or banana
  • 1/3 Cup
    mixed nuts; raw cashews, almonds, pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts
  • 1 Tablespoon
    dried fruit-pitted cherries, mulberries
  • Pinch
    of sea salt
  • Pinch
    of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 Tablespoon
    vanilla (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons
    maple syrup or coconut sugar crystals (optional)

Instructions

  1. To make hemp milk:

    - Blend the water and the hemp seeds in a blender or a magic bullet for about 20 seconds.

  2. Pour the hemp milk into a small mixing bowl. Add the chia seeds, wait 2 minutes, mix, wait 2 more minutes, then mix again. Add all other ingredients, tasting for sweetness to see if maple syrup is needed. I find it sweet enough with the fresh and dried fruit.
