chia seed breakfast bowl ~vegan, gluten free~

Move over Wheaties…there’s a new breakfast of champions in town!  

The chia seed breakfast bowl is just as easy as to make as pouring a bowl of cereal, more nutritious and tastes even better!

It takes 2 minutes to mix all the ingredients together, place in an air-tight container and refrigerate overnight.  Wake up and breakfast is ready!  You can also portion out into smaller containers for a great grab and go breakfast on the run!

This recipe makes 2 servings.  Each serving contains:

4564 mg Omega 3 and 1504 mg Omega 6

10 grams of fiber

12% daily value of calcium (from chia seeds alone)

250-300 calories and 10-15 grams of protein depending on the type of milk you use

I used a combination of soy milk and canned whole coconut milk to create a more custard-like quality…similar to Greek yogurt.  If you don’t like the tapioca consistency of chia seed pudding, blend it in a high-speed blender until creamy (that’s how I made this bowl!).
