Breakfast Berry Chia Pots

by | January 6, 2018

These breakfast berry chia pots are filled with lots of vitamin C, calcium & protein. You can use whatever seasonal berries are available in your area, but for this one I have used strawberries and raspberries.

To Make Raspberry Chia Jam:

  • 3 cups raspberries
  • 2 tbs maple syrup (optional)
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • Seeds scraped from 2 vanilla beans (or 2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla powder)
  • Grated zest of 1 lime

 

Method:

  1. Cook raspberries in a saucepan on a very low heat for 5-10 mins & use a potato masher to gently squash the berries
  2. Take off the heat & add the chia seeds & stir well
  3. Add the vanilla & lime zest & let sit for 30 mins to thicken or place in fridge
  4. Taste & add maple syrup if desired

To Make Strawberry Chia Jam:

  • 3 cups strawberries
  • 2 tbs maple syrup (optional)

Method:

  2. Take off the heat & add in the chia seeds & stir well
  3. Add the cinnamon & fresh orange juice & let sit for 30 mins to thicken or place in fridge
  4. Taste & add maple syrup if desired
