Mayans prized them for their ability to provide sustainable energy… in fact; “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength.”
Chia seeds are among the healthiest foods on the planet.
This is a super easy recipe that can be made in bigger batches and made the day before! It is a fantastic travel food that keeps you fuller for longer and is really versatile . Here is one of many versions that I love.
Print Recipe Card


1 cup of nut milk (240 grams)

1 mashed banana

2 tbs. of chia seeds

1 tbs. of flax

Pinch of cinnamon/cardamom & clove (spice mix see basics)

Splash of maple syrup

1 tbs. of almond flakes

1 tbs. of raisins or dried blueberries

Fruit of choice to top off

1/2 teaspoon f vanilla


Mix all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, except the fruits used to top it off. Set aside or store in the fridge. You need to give the seeds time to absorb all the liquids and get a rice pudding like texture, leave for about 20-30 minutes.

Portion out in cups, glasses or mason jars (that are so chic right now). If you make more than one portion store in fridge until you want to eat and enjoy.

Lots of love xx
