It’s 6 am. After tip-toing down the stairs, the last thing you want to do is put a blender on and wake the whole house/next door neighbours up, right? If you’re an early riser, and don’t want to make a noisy breakfast, try this – It is quick to make and you can prepare it with your eye’s half closed in silence.
SHH! CHIA PORRIDGE
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup chia seeds.
- Juice of 3 oranges (juiced ever so quietly in a manuel citrus juicer)
- 1 banana, sliced.
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut butter (optional)
- Agave, honey or male syrup to drizzle.
Pour the orange juice in a bowl. Pour the chia seeds on top of that, and stir to coat all the seeds in juice. Leave it for 10 minutes. (You can use this time to make a cup of herbal tea, wash your face, or just generally faff about). When the 10 minutes is up, place your sliced banana on top of the orangey chia, drizzle over some agave and sprinkle on some cinnamon. If, like me, you enjoy the taste and goodness of coconut butter so much that you just want to put it on everything, place a few little scrapings of the creamy butter on top of the banana’s. And there you go! Sit like Goldilocks and enjoy your porridge whilst the three bear’s lay sleeping in bed. Shhh….
