Superfood Recipe #1: Chia Pudding

It’s a common myth that chia seeds must be soaked for at least a few hours. No. These tiny seeds absorb liquid quickly, swelling as the water soaks in. Within ten minutes, it’s nicely gooey.

Ingredients:

  • Chia seeds – four tablespoons
  • Blueberries, raspberries or strawberries – 1 cup
  • Raw cacao powder – 2 teaspoons
  • Honey – 2 teaspoons
  • Maca powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Nut milk – two thirds cup

Mix together these ingredients in a bowl. Keep aside a few of the berries for later. Stir ingredients well until nicely mixed. Chia seeds will soak up the nut milk. This takes just a few minutes.

Top up with the berries you kept aside, and your chia pudding is ready to eat. Quick, right?

Superfood Recipe #2: Avocado and Yoghurt Toast

Avocado Yoghurt Toast

Avocado with toast is yummy. And it’s also a healthy, nutritious meal. This recipe is a twist on a popular favorite.

Ingredients:

  • Bread – 2 slices
  • Avocado – 1
  • Coconut or soya yoghurt – 1 serving
  • Lime juice
  • Chilli flakes – 1 teaspoon
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper

Toast the slices of bread. Cut the avocado and remove the stone. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon or butterknife. Place the avocado between slices of bread and mash the flesh into your toast. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Put the yoghurt into a bowl and squeeze in lime juice. Stir it nicely. Season with pepper and salt. Then top each toast with the lime yoghurt mix, sprinkling chilly flakes over it.

Superfood Recipe #3: Coconut Oat Pudding

Coconut Oat Pudding

Like Goldilocks says in the favorite fable, this is just right – in sweetness, in calories, and in satiation. A great way to start your day. Oh, and it cooks really fast, so you won’t even need 20 minutes to prepare this dish.

Ingredients:

  • Rolled oats – one third cup
  • Coconut milk – one third cup
  • Water
  • Ground cinnamon – half teaspoon
  • Maca powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Fresh dates, finely chopped
  • Dried coconut, desicated – 1 tablespoon
  • Raisins – 1 tablespoon
  • Chopped almonds – 1 tablespoon

Cook the oats, coconut milk, cinnamon, maca powder and chopped dates with a quarter cup of water in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the mixture is thick and creamy.

It will take around 6 or 7 minutes to cook. Pour into a bowl and top with raisins, almonds and shredded coconut. Enjoy a healthy, filling breakfast.
