This chia raspberry prune breakfast is so delicious it reminds me (for some reason) of rhubarb crumble.
Chia seeds are the superfood of the last few years and I too have to admit that I have jumped in and think they are fabulous, especially in creating quick, easy and healthy breakfasts.
And here are some impressive stats about the tiny little superfood:
A 1 ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains
Fiber: 11 grams.
Protein: 4 grams.
Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.
pretty impressive when you consider that this is just a single ounce, which supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate!
Prunes are another food I like to use in small amounts, not only for the added sweetness, but the wonderful health benefits, including their ability to relieve constipation, provide antioxidant protection, prevent pre-mature aging, promote cardiovascular health, and reduce the risk of cancer and osteoporosis
Added to all that is kiwifruit, raspberries and ground almonds and you have a super nutritional breakfast (or snack or healthy dessert) that only takes a few minutes to put together.
This can be made the night before or up to 1 hour before.
