Here are 3 healthy, easy and delicious no-cook breakfast ideas!
½ cup raw white chia seeds.
500ml milk of your choice or 1/2 milk 1/2 yoghurt for a thicker pudding
ADD FRUIT –1/2 cup diced canned, fresh or frozen fruit.
ADD SWEETNESS (optional) 1 tablespoon honey, maple syrup or sugar.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl with spoon.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. or overnight.
Top with extra fruit to serve.
It can last up to 3 days covered in the fridge. More chia makes it thicker and less makes a runnier pudding.
¼ cup rolled oats.
¼ cup milk of your choice
¼ cup yoghurt of your choice (or ½ cup of milk if you don’t want to use yoghurt).
Place oats, milk and yoghurt in a 250ml bowl or jar.
Flavour up by adding one of these combinations. Experiment with your own combinations as well.
PICK ONE FRUIT : banana -4-5 slices or 2-3 fresh strawberries or 3-4 chopped prunes or ¼ cup blueberries or ¼ cup chopped mango, or 1 small apple or pear grated.
ADD SOME CRUNCH: 2 teaspoons slivered almonds or 2 tsp sunflower seeds or 2 teaspoons walnuts, 1 teaspoons linseeds, 2 teaspoons other chopped nuts.
ADD SOME EXTRA SWEETNESS if you wish – 2 tsp honey or maple syrup.
ADD SOME SPICE- a sprinkle of cinnamon, ginger or nutmeg.
Stir together or close the lid of the jar and shake for 10 seconds. Store in the fridge overnight or at least 4 hours. The longer it sits, the creamier it becomes.
