Loaded with fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods you can eat and make a great choice for breakfast. Let them plump in liquid (such as the almond milk here) overnight, then spoon them into bowls and top with fresh fruit in the morning.
1 cup (240 ml) almond milk, coconut milk, or a combination
1⁄4 cup (40 g) chia seeds
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup (150 g) blackberries
2 kiwifruits, peeled and sliced
4 ripe apricots, pitted and cut into wedges
1⁄2 cup (75 g) pomegranate seeds or raspberries
1⁄4 cup (20 g) toasted coconut chips
In a covered container, stir together the almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
Stir the chia mixture and let stand at room temperature until the seeds are plumped, about 10 minutes. Divide the mixture among 4 serving bowls and arrange the blackberries, kiwi, apricots, and pomegranate seeds on top.
Sprinkle evenly with the coconut chips and serve.
