Raw Chia Seed – Perfect Porridge Recipe

Chia seeds have been an important source of food and medicine for the Mayans, Aztecs and Tehuantepecs for centuries. Boasting powerful anti-inflammatory properties and crammed with beneficial antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, chia seeds can actively delay the signs of aging and help strengthen the immune system. And, as they balance blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure and aid weight loss, they are an ideal superfood for diabetics too. Enjoy this delicious raw chia seed porridge for the perfect, low glycemic index start to your day!

– 1/3 cup of raw, organic chia seeds
– 2/3 cup of spring water
– 1 tablespoon of organic goji berries
– 1 tablespoon of dried, shredded organic coconut
– 1 teaspoon of organic honey
– 1 tablespoon of organic pumpkin seeds
– 1 tablespoon of organic sunflower seeds
– A dash of almond milk

Place the chia seeds in a large mixing bowl and add the water. Stir immediately before adding both the honey and coconut. Stir thoroughly once more. Next stir in the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. As chia seeds absorb lots of water, you’ll notice that your porridge becomes nice and thick quite quickly. Finally sprinkle with a colourful handful of raw goji berries and a splash of delicious almond milk and enjoy!

    Hey I was just wondering how long you need to leave this soaking? Usually it is required about 40 minutes for the chia seeds to be left to sit there and do their thing, or even better over night. In all honesty I just want to eat it straight away, and as far as this recipe goes, it seems that that’s possible, but I just wanted to check? Cheers.

    • Hi Sio
      I left mine overnight ready for the morning. Wow this one is fabulous.

      I have to admit thought that I soaked the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds for a while and threw the water away. Then added to the porridge mix and left till morning.

      I also found a fantastic source of chia seed which was the best quality I have tried and also the best price.

      Have a look at chiauk.com – if you email them they might even send you a free sample. You can blame me!

    • Hi 13 chapter
      Not sure what you found difficult. You may have thought you had to do something else?

      Just to clarify, all you have to do is get these ingredients and then mix them together. Leave covered overnight or in the fridge and in the morning and ‘heh presto’ you have chia porridge.

      If you wanted to you could put all ingredients into a blender to make the mix a finer consistency, then put in a bowl and leave overnight.

      Good luck
