Updated: Jan 18, 2019

Here are 3 healthy, easy and delicious no-cook breakfast ideas!

Chia Pudding

Serves 4


  • 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.

Step 1

Mix all ingredients in a bowl with spoon.

Step 2

Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. or overnight.

Step 3

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.

Overnight Oats

Serves 1


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).

Step 1

Place oats, milk and yoghurt in a 250ml bowl or jar.

Step 2

  • 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.

Step 3

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.
