Notes

Chia seeds are superfoods, high in healthy fats, fibre and protein and this dish can be eaten for breakfast, a snack or dessert! The basic ratio of chia seeds to liquid is 1:3 so you can adjust the recipe to make just a breakfast for yourself, or simply teaspoon to top your muesli, oats or pop into your smoothie.
