Breakfast

Mango & Blueberry Chia Pot

September 18, 2018

Having breakfast prepped and ready to go just makes life easier. FACT. Making breakfast the night before takes a few minutes OR you can batch jars ready for the week ahead and the night before just add milk, even easier! The Mango & Blueberry Chia Pot is one of my go-to easy breakfasts and you can mix and match with whatever fruits and flavours you like. Chia seeds for breakfast is a nice light and easy way to start the day.

Sometimes chia isn’t the most filling breakfast and if it’s not enough for you, I recommend adding in a scoop of protein powder (I love Nuzest Smooth Vanilla). I also like to add some crunch in the form of nuts and seeds or some of my Ginger & Buckwheat Granola.

Key Nutrients

Chia Seeds

  • A combination of protein, fibre and healthy fats to help boost satiety and feeling of fullness.
  • Approximately 6g protein per serve.
  • Approximate 12g fibre per serve – that’s nearly half of your daily intake!

Cinnamon

  • Helps to stabilise blood glucose levels which helps to reduce energy crashes and sugar cravings.
  • Rich source of antioxidants.

Fruit

  • Blueberries & mango are both amazing sources of vitamin C.
  • Using whole pieces of fruit (if you don’t have mango & blueberries, use anything) will boost your daily intake of fibre.

Easy breakfasts!

Tips

I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard size mug.
