Beat the Breakfast Blues: 7 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day - Part 2 - Probiotic Muesli and Chia Pudding with Acai Topping

Posted: Tue, 22 September 2015, 12:41

The next recipe in our Beat the Breakfast Blues blog series brings in the dynamic duo of probiotic muesli and chia pudding. If you want to snazz up your chia pudding, or want something a bit more filling to fuel you through your day, try making the following addition:

Probiotic Muesli (for one)

Add a Handful of oats to a small bowl

Sprinkle a teaspoon or 2 of flaxseeds (AKA linseeds) - ground or whole - whichever you prefer

Cover with enough almond or coconut milk to cover the oats but not drown them – just so they soak in the liquid. Leave for about 5 minutes. (alternatively you could do this overnight when you make the chia pudding too, it’s up to you)

Choose your option: Either mix through an opened up probiotic capsule and stir through; or mix a good dollop of Coyo coconut yogurt through for additional thickness, flavour and probiotic dose.

Acai Topping

Blend up a mixture of frozen strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and/or blueberries with a teaspoon of coconut sugar and a tsp of acai powder.

Sometimes berries can be quite tart, so taste test before you smother your breakfast in your topping!
You may want to add a bit of cinnamon for natural sweetness or a bit more coconut sugar.

Directions:

Get out a beautiful bowl and add your chia pudding (as made here) filling one-half of the bowl.

Fill the other half of the bowl with your probiotic muesli and then pour over your acai topping.

The thicker the topping the better so that you don’t pour an ocean of liquid across your bowl!

Then top off your creation with your choice of nuts e.g macadamia, cashew, almond, pecan and any additional fruit topping.

Voila!
