Coconut chia porridge

Food & Recipes / Smoothies & Breakfast

This weekend has not been Sydney’s best performance weather wise. Serious wind, rain and grey grey grey. It was the type of weekend that makes you reluctantly realise summer is winding down for another year. Sob!

So, in the unhappy spirit of winter slowly approaching, I decided mid-run to ditch my standard green smoothie breakfast for something a little more cosy. This is a winter favourite you can’t really beat.

Ingredients:

Handful chia seeds

Handful raw buckwheat seeds

Handful shredded coconut

Water

Almond milk / Soy milk

Tsp coconut butter

Tsp natural nut butter (I used peanut)

Fresh pear & banana

Method:

*Throw chia seeds, shredded coconut, buckwheat, milk, water, coconut butter and nut butter into a small pot. Cook as you would normal porridge (using same amounts of milk / water). The chia seeds absorb the liquid to form a really nice thick pudding consistency.

Serve with fresh fruit / nuts / yogurt or whatever your wintery heart desires.
