Makes approx. 6 individual servings (depending upon size of jars)

Ingredients:

  • 5 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. quinoa flakes
  • 400 ml almond milk (or coconut)
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. of desiccated coconut
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

Method:

  1. Place chia seeds, quinoa, milk, cinnamon, coconut and maple syrup into a container with a tight fitting lid and shake vigorously.
  2. Store in the fridge for several hours or overnight giving the chia seeds enough time to swell. I like to give the container a shake from time to time, though it’s not essential.
  3. To serve, top with fresh fruit, nuts or seeds of choice.
