Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia P-P-P-Porridge :)

Here is a simple recipe for a nutritious and FAST breakfast or anytime snack!

Homemade almond milk.
 Add water and a small handful of soaked almonds so together they measure at the one cup line. 
Blend until totally smooth.  I personally do not strain it.  I just pour it right in. 

 1/2 banana

 2 Tablespoons chia seed

 Mash the banana and chia and almond milk together

 You can eat it immediately or wait about 6 mins for the chia to get "jelly-ee".  
I love to add about a teaspoon of grade b maple syrup.  But we finished our bottle over the weekend. :(

Go ahead... you won't be able to control yourself! :)

Give yourself permission to have the best Monday ever!!

Chia Porridge
Homemade almond milk, or store bought,--Water and a small handful of almonds, 
preferably almonds soaked, so together they come to the 1 cup line in the blender

1/2 ripe banana

2 T chia seeds

Optional: 1 tsp grade b maple syrup or sweetener of choice. 

It really does not matter the order.  Pour in almond milk over banana, add chia seeds and mash together with a fork.  You can eat immediately or wait a couple of minutes to let the chia turn more of a jelly texture.  Make sure to "chew" as you eat for maximum digestion and assimilation. 
The maple syrup is a really fun optional treat.  

Have a beautiful day!
