Raw Chia-flax Power Porridge


This is the first grain-free porridge I’ve made since giving up the grain, and contrary to what you may think – it’s actually packed with flavor. I use the Sun Warrior Vanilla RAW Protein powder in this recipe, which almost makes it taste like a vanilla custard or pudding…and the texture of the chia seeds are pretty awesome.

I made this for the first time yesterday for breakfast, and was such a fan that I made 2 more servings last night so our breakfast was ready to go this morning… it’s super easy to throw together the night before, just mix all the ingredients except the fresh (or frozen) blueberries which you can throw on top when your ready to serve.  This recipe makes two servings.

Dietary Info: GF/DF/SF/PA/V and Vegan (*see notes at end of post for dietary codes)

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 8 Tbs. (1/2 c.) raw organic chia seeds
  • 4 heaping Tbs. of almond meal *see notes
  • 2 heaping Tbs. (16g.) ground LSA *see notes
  • 30g unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups homemade creamy caramel almond milk or unsweetened almond milk *see notes
  • 1 scoop of sun warrior raw vanilla protein powder
  • 1/3 c. fresh or frozen blueberries

Instructions:

  1. In a medium size bowl, mix the first five ingredients well.
  2. With a hand blender or shaker, whiz almond milk, vanilla extract and protein powder until smooth.
  3. Mix liquid into dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Divide mixture into two bowls (I like to put mine in little serving jars that can be stored in the fridge the night before). If preparing this in in the morning for breakfast, let the mixture sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to gel and thicken. If preparing the night before, it’ll have plenty of time so it will be ready when you are first thing!
  4. When you’re ready to dig in, sprinkle with fresh (or frozen) blueberries, and enjoy! Yummy to the tummy.

*notes: The almond meal I use is actually the left over pulp that I’ve dehydrated from my homemade creamy caramel almond milk, which has a delicious sweet nutty flavor. Recipe for milk and instructions for making the almond meal from pulp can be found here. Alternatively, you may use unsweetened store bought almond milk and almond meal instead.

For the ground LSA, I use Healtheries LSA (Linseed, Sunflower, Almond) Super Fruits but ground flaxseed may be used instead.
