My mornings are busy and hectic and easily sucking all the energy for the rest of the day. Besides the classical coffee, I need a lot of good and healthy food to load my energy reserves to last until late in the night - and maybe over midnight too.
A couple of years ago, I discovered the strength of chia seeds. Those small poppy-like dots, doubling their size if left in water at least for 15 minutes, are strong enough to keep me energized for a very long time. The chia-based recipes are easy to prepare and a good breakfast opening for busy people, with a complex agenda ahead for the coming hours.
This pudding was the result of some creative brain-storming. As usual, was out of time and with a couple of ingredients in my fridge, so tried to combine them in a smart way for delicious results.
Here is the recipe:
2 teaspoons of chia seeds
1/2 cup of cold milk - you can also add other milk-substitute 'milks' or just water
1 medium sized banana, smashed in the blender at medium speed for 2 minutes
100 gr. fresh blueberries
Smash the banana in the blender. Add the milk, chia seeds, smashed banana and the blueberries. Leave it in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. If you want to have your pudding breakfast ready in time, you can store it in the fridge overnight. The seeds will grow even bigger and the all ingredients will bond together perfectly.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
