We love using chia seeds here at Sparrow. Chia seeds pack more calcium than milk, more antioxidants than blueberries, and more Omega-3 than Salmon. We try to toss them in lots of different recipes and here is one of our favorites.
1/2 Cup of Chia Seeds
1 1/2 Cups of Almond Milk
1/4 Teaspoon of Liquid Stevia (or 2-3 Tablespoons of Honey or Maple Syrup)
Toppings of Your Choice
Additional Option: 1/4 cup non-sweetened almond butter or sunflower butter. Add almond or sunflower butter and blend well before refrigerating.
Pour your almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener into a mixing bowl. Stir until well combined. Refrigerate for two hours or leave it overnight. Remove from refrigerator and place into individual serving cups. Top with strawberries, walnuts, shredded coconut, cocoa nibs, or the toppings of your choice. Get creative and use what you have!
Bam! You have yourself a delicious and very filling breakfast, snack, or dessert.
