Recipe Notes

You can let the chia and milk/water soak first and then add other ingredients before you are ready to eat.

I encourage you to NOT be shy and add and change fruits and ingredients. Just keep it balanced with plant-based and fairly unprocessed carbs, protein, and fats.

One of the reasons to feel safe 'playing' with ingredients is because chia does not taste anything. Add good to good and get 'gooder' 🙂

Oh by the way, if you have issues with gelatinous texture, you WILL NOT like chia porridge. Otherwise, it's heaven.
