Chia and Red Berries Breakfast Yoghurt

This is the perfect healthy breakfast to make a large batch of on a Sunday evening ahead of a busy week. It will keep you satiated and give you enough energy to power you through a hectic morning. Starting your morning with a chia-filled meal is a great idea, as chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and protein, ensuring you’ll stay fuller for longer, as well as giving your body vital nutrients. The recipe only takes around 10 minutes to prepare so it’s perfect to do as a part of your meal-prep. Adding the Boka strawberry bar to this recipe makes it extra delicious!

This recipe serves 1 but can be doubled/tripled to make a bigger batch.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 Boka Strawberry bar
  • 40g of frozen red berries
  • 1 cup dairy-free coconut milk yoghurt
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup chia seeds

Method

  • In a container, combine the yoghurt, coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  • Add in the chia seeds and stir well. The mixture will be thin but will thicken overnight!
  • Leave the mixture in the fridge overnight.
  • In the morning, when you are ready to eat it, add a layer of red berries into your serving glass and top with the preparation.
  • Crumble your Boka strawberry bar, sprinkle on the yoghurt and serve!
