Vanilla-Almond-Chia Breakfast Bowl

Vanilla-Almond-Chia Breakfast Bowl

This breakfast bowl is packed full of nutrients. Oats are high in fibre and can help control blood sugar levels. Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3s, fibre and protein. Almonds add a nice crunch and are a good source of healthy fats and protein. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamins.


For the porridge:

  • 50g jumbo porridge oats
  • 200ml unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp low fat plain yoghurt
  • 25g chia seeds

For the topping:

  • 150g punnet blueberries
  • 25g sliced or flaked almonds
  • clear honey, to taste

Method of preparation:

In a bowl, mix the oatmeal, chia seeds, vanilla extract and almond milk. Let sit for 10 minutes until the chia seeds have started to absorb the liquid.

After 10 minutes, stir in the plain yoghurt. You can add more almond milk if you prefer a looser consistency.

Cover the bowl and leave in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, stir the porridge well. If it’s too thick, add a little more almond milk.

Top the porridge with the blueberries and slivered almonds.
