Raspberry & Banana Layered Chia Pudding
This might look a bit O.T.T for one mummy's breakfast but life is too short for toast & butter every day, plus the kids went crazy for the raspberry layer, so everyone is happy! Chia seeds are full of omega-3 (more than salmon in fact) and are supposedly helpful in weight loss in that they absorb ten times their weight in water and make you feel fuller for longer. Fingers crossed!
What you need:
To make a simple chia pudding:
1 cup of milk (cow's, soya, almond, rice - whatever)
3 tablespoons of chia seeds (currently 24% off on iherb)
1 teaspoon/tablespoon of your sweetener of choice
You can then add mashed fruit to the pudding, or chopped fruit in layers as well as granola, nuts, seeds, cacao nibs - the world is your oyster!
Mix 3 tablespoons of chia seeds with 1 cup of milk, cover and allow to soak overnight. Then mix it well in the morning to get rid of any lumps. I then divided the mixture and mixed half with a tablespoon of raspberries and the other half with a mashed banana. My first layer was the raspberry mix, then granola, then the banana mix, before finally sprinkling cacao nibs on top.
