Chia Porridge101

This turned out to be a wonderful addition to our raw breakfasts foods.  If you never have tried Chia, there is one thing you ought to know, it is very filling!  So you don’t walk away hungry after a bowl of this.  You can make a jar of Chia Gel that will keep for up to 2 weeks in your fridge.  It’s a great staple to have around for various recipes and would help satisfy that, “Gotta have it now” craving.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp  chia seeds
  • 1 large apple, organic
  • 1 banana (ripe)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Preparation:

  1. Soak the chia seeds soaked for at least 2 – 3 hours prior, could even soak overnight so you are ready for morning.
  2. Simply blend up the ingredients in the vita mix and you are ready to go!  You could easily be creative with this dish.  Mangos would be awesome in it and give it an even richer consistency.

    Tried this this morning and it was so good! And easy, too. My stomach had been feeling kind of upset, so I wanted something that was easy to digest and might help me feel better. Chia porridge seemed to do the trick! Thanks!

    My oh my oh my!!! Just made this for the second time and had to get on here immediately and thank you! I have missed my porridge and dreamt of finding an alternative to oats and here it is! I made a double batch for me and hubby and topped it with a big swirl of maple syrup and it was DIVINE. No other word for it. Thanks Aimee Sue for yet another wonderful addition to my diet :)

    How many does this recipe serve? I’m supposing one or two…I have a wonderful opportunity to prepare raw living foods to a film cast and crew and need to know how many times to double this. Thank you.

    How many cups of water should I soak the chia seeds in for 2 people? I’m very new to raw foods.

    Thanks!

      Hello Coco… welcome to my site. I am here to help when and were I can so never hesitate to ask questions. :)

      It will depend on how thick or soupy you want the porridge to end up. But I would recommend 1/2 – 1 cup of water. Chia seeds will absorb all the water and make a gel. Have you worked with chia before? Keep in touch! amie sue
