Chia porridge is go for breaky

We have been having this for breakfast since the colder weather has hit us, it's so yummy.


  • Bowl
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup chia seeds (it makes double when soaked)
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 7 almonds
  • 10-15 sultanas 
  • 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut


1. Add dry ingredients to bowl, then add liquid ingredients and gently stir

2. Leave for 5 mins

3. Stir again then put in fridge with cling wrap over the top. (If the mixture looks too dry, just add more water, the chia seeds will absorb all the liquid so you really can't add too much liquid)

4. Leave over night

Because it's been in the fridge and will be cold, I like to pop mine in a pan and add a little bit of water so it doesn't stick and heat it up so it's nice and warm. This is better for your spleen and digestion for it to be warm and it brings out all the flavours.

Then pop it in a bowl and add some pear or banana.

My kids add almond milk to it and a touch of honey but I think it's already sweet enough.

Give it a go for a great no dairy, no wheat alternative.

Best, Tabitha
