Chia seeds are my favorite source of fiber. I put it in almost every breakfast item. Like my smoothies, oatmeal, cereal, and yogurt. Despite their size, they are packed with so many essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, copper, fiber, iron, and calcium. They are also a great source of protein and provide more omega-3s, calcium, phosphorus, and fiber than flaxseeds. So I decided to play with some recipes I saw on Pinterest and remixed my own.
You will need almond milk, chia seeds, 1 kiwi, and about two handsful of spinach for the base.
3 cups of Almond milk
2 handsful of spinach
1 very ripe kiwi (which helps with sweetness)
**You can add honey or agave to sweeten if the kiwi isn’t enough
Then pour into a bowl. Add 6 tablespoons of chia seeds and mix it with a fork. Let it sit for a few hours until the texture is gel like. Then, serve and add your toppings. My toppings were 1 banana 3 strawberries and 1 more kiwi for toppings.
