Hello again! It’s been a long time. Summer has been full of traveling, sunshine, family and friends. The past few weeks we have been working on creating a new blog design, because the old one was not suiting us very well anymore. We are so far really liking this new look and we hope you do too! We made it a bit easier to navigate (we hope) and also nicer to look at.
One of the reasons we updated the design is also because one of us has been working hard on a new project, which is still a secret right now, but we will share more information about this soon, so stay tuned!
We also have some really good recipes to share, starting today with the best breakfast we have had in a long time. It includes everything I love to eat in the morning: chia pudding, fruit and smoothies! We added it all together and created the ultimate layered chia breakfast smoothie. This breakfast is a little more filling than your regular smoothie because of the chia pudding, so it will keep you dancing until lunchtime!
We only have one advice, make this as soon as possible!
Layered chia breakfast smoothie
You can prepare the chia pudding the night before to save time in the a.m. Just leave in the fridge overnight.
4 tbsp chia seeds
250 ml (1 cup) + 4 tbsp plant milk (almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk etc.)
140 g (1 cup) berries (we used frozen strawberries)
4 leaves fresh mint
4 tbsp plant milk (almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk etc.)
70 g (½ cup) berries (we used frozen strawberries), thawed
Toppings: fresh (or frozen) berries, coconut chips, fresh mint
Add the chia seeds and plant milk to a bowl. Stir well and set on the side to thicken up for at least 30 minutes (you can also prepare this the night before and leave it in the fridge overnight). If using frozen berries for the fruit mash, make sure to thaw them before continuing.
Prepare the smoothie, add the bananas, berries, mint, dates and plant milk to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and thick. Mash the thawed berries with a fork (if they aren’t completely thawed, you can speed it up in the microwave or in a small saucepan for a short amount of time).
When the chia pudding is nice and thick, start by adding a layer of berry mash to two bowls. Top with the chia pudding and the smoothie and finish with some berries, coconut chips and fresh mint.
