20g Chia Seeds (black or white)
150ml Plant-Based Milk (I like Oat or Almond milk)
½ tsp Matcha Green Tea Powder
½ tsp Maca Powder
1 handful of blueberries
1 tsp maple syrup (sub honey if not vegan) optional
For the chia pots, place all the ingredients (apart from the blueberries and syrup) into an airtight container and mix well so all the powder is combined. Stir in the blueberries, and syrup if using.
Place the pot in the fridge overnight or for at least 6-8 hours for the chia seeds to absorb the liquid. You may want to stir the mixture after a couple of hours.
In the morning give the pot a quick stir and enjoy! Add a range of toppings – think extra fruit, nut butter, coconut and seeds!
This makes a great breakfast or snack mid-afternoon pick me up to keep you energised and full until dinner.
