Mango & Blueberry Chia Pot

Having breakfast prepped and ready to go just makes life easier. FACT. Making breakfast the night before takes a few minutes OR you can batch jars ready for the week ahead and the night before just add milk, even easier! The Mango & Blueberry Chia Pot is one of my go-to easy breakfasts and you can mix and match with whatever fruits and flavours you like. Chia seeds for breakfast is a nice light and easy way to start the day.

Sometimes chia isn’t the most filling breakfast and if it’s not enough for you, I recommend adding in a scoop of protein powder (I love Nuzest Smooth Vanilla). I also like to add some crunch in the form of nuts and seeds or some of my Ginger & Buckwheat Granola.

Easy breakfasts!

Mango & Blueberry Chia Pot – Key Nutrients

Chia Seeds

  • A combination of protein, fibre and healthy fats to help boost satiety and feeling of fullness.
  • Approximately 6g protein per serve.
  • Approximate 12g fibre per serve – that’s nearly half of your daily intake!

Cinnamon

  • Helps to stabilise blood glucose levels which helps to reduce energy crashes and sugar cravings.
  • Rich source of antioxidants.

Fruit

  • Blueberries & mango are both amazing sources of vitamin C.
  • Using whole pieces of fruit (if you don’t have mango & blueberries, use anything) will boost your daily intake of fibre.

Mango & Blueberry Chia Pot

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 people

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds (or 4 tbsp)
  • 1 cups almond, soy or coconut milk (opt for unsweetened where possible)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 mango (or 1/2 cup fresh or frozen)
  • 1 handful blueberries (or 1/2 cup fresh or frozen)

Instructions

  • Place the chia and cinnamon into a bowl or jar and stir thoroughly before adding the milk. Stir through and let the mixture sit for a few minutes and then stir again (the chia can sometimes all sink to the bottom, so an extra stir is handy!).
  • Chop the mango and add with blueberries to the mix.
  • Top with nuts, seeds, coconut chips or granola etc.

Notes

Tips

I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard size mug.
