Radio Caravan Cosmos Big Banner
Raw Superfood Chia Porridge

By: Sarah
Region: American
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks
Servings: 4

Ingredients

500g raw almond milk (I followed the recipe in the Rawlicious booklet, minus the vanilla extract)
85g chia seeds*
30g incaberries*
20g goji berries*
20g raw cacao nibs*
60g raw honey*
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon*
pinch nutmeg
2 pinches cardamom
slosh of vanilla extract (about 2 1/2 tsp)
to sprinkle on top of porridge:
pine nuts
cashews
raspberries* and/or blueberries* (frozen or fresh)
pumpkin seeds*
linseeds*
extra dusting of cinnamon*

Directions

1) Weigh almond milk and chia seeds into TM bowl. Immediately mix for 20 seconds on reverse, speed 3 so as to avoid clumping.
2) Add incaberries, goji berries, cacao nibs, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and vanilla to TM bowl. Mix again on reverse, speed 3 for 30 seconds.
3) Let porridge sit overnight in the fridge to allow the chia seeds to soak up the almond milk (don’t skip this step; you really won’t be happy if the chia seeds soak up all the juice in your digestive system instead!). Soaking overnight is not only fantastic if you’re low on time in the mornings (make it the night before and pop it in the fridge ready to go as soon as you’re up and about), but an overnight soak is also going to lead to optimum digestion and availability of nutrients. The chia seeds will absorb all the liquid in approximately 45 minutes, but as with any soaking – the longer the better!
4) When serving, sprinkle a small handful of each suggested topping on top for extra flavour and extra goodness! Or get creative, and throw on anything you can think of!
* denotes that that particular ingredient is on at least one of the many ‘superfood lists’ floating around the internet.

If you add it up, there are TEN superfoods in this porridge recipe! That is certainly a good dose of superfoods. I haven’t listed all the benefits of all these superfoods, but if anyone is interested then I will absolutely do so. But together they provide a very comprehensive combination of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, omega-3 and omega-6, proteins, amino acids, etc...
