Oh…. I do love breakfast time! New Year, new ideas, new breakfasts. Having some yoghurt left over I decided to try out some healthy smoothie bowls for my breakfast this week, and they we sooooooo delicious! A lovely smooth thick texture and full of healthy vitamins, whats not to like?

Here are 2 combinations that I tried and succeeded with.

  1. 1 x Avocado, 1 x Banana, 5 x Walnuts, 1 tsp vanilla, 4 tbsp natural yoghurt (low fat), 50ml milk, Mix everything in a blender or use a hand blender then top with 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tsp cinnamon to garnish
  2. 1 x Avocado, 1 x Banana, 6 Strawberries, 5 walnuts, 4 tbsp natural yoghurt (low fat), 50ml milk, Mix everything in a blender then top with 1 tbsp chia seeds and 2 strawberries to garnish.

I now have the urge to try more combinations, keep you posted!

Looking again for something different, thought I’d combine my breakfast together, with my love of Green Tea and Porridge in the morning this was a bit of a chance but it kinda worked!

 

200ml Green Tea

50ml Milk

15g Chia Seeds

7g Toasted Coconut Flakes

7 g Walnuts – chopped

 

  1. Make your Green Tea as usual, add in the milk and Chia Seeds and mix, allow to blend together overnight in the fridge.
  2. In the morning, put your porridge oats in a bowl, pour over the green tea and chia mixture.
  3. Cook in the microwave at 800 watt for approx 3 mins.
  4. Sprinkle Toasted Coconut and Walnuts on
  5. Serve….Yummy and very nutritious!                                                                                                               20160419_104304

Superfood Brekkie

20160227_083728

 

This has got to be one of my favourite breakfast choices, not only is it tasty it is also good for you, with good fats in the avocado, good protein in the eggs, fibre in the wholemeal thin and also the little sprinkle of Chia, it really does give me a good start for the day ahead.

1 Wholemeal thin or wholemeal slice of bread

1 egg scrambled with pepper (you could also put some chives through it)

1/4 avocado sliced or mashed

1 tsp chia seeds

 

Super Tasty, Superfood!

Chia Seed Chocolate pudding

DSC_0009.NEF

So, I am seeing a lot of different recipes for Chia Seed Puddings, I use Chia Seeds (Superfood) in my porridge for my breakfast but never though about puddings until now, my curiosity got the better of me. I would have usually used Cocoa Powder with this but as I never had any I used one of my Actidiet Powders (I am currently doing a 7 Day Shred and Cleanse for my friends business, check it out http://www.actidiet.co.uk/me/julie-pringle/).

20160116_122006

Serves 2

250ml of Almond Milk

1 Sachet of Actidiet powder (I used chocolate) or 1/4 cup of cocoa powder

4 tbsp Chia Seeds

1 tbsp Maple Syrup

  1. Mix the powder with the Almond Milk
  2. Add in the Chia Seeds and Maple Syrup and mix through
  3. Pour into serving bowls and refrigerate overnight
  4. Serve……Yummy!

Well, to my delight it tasted absolutely heavenly…….love this!
