Instructions To prepare the night before

  2. Ideally you’ll want to swell the chia and flax seeds overnight, however it’s not 100% necessary. You can leave them to swell for about 15mins prior to serving. 

Chia and Flax Seed Breakfast Bowl

  1. Remove the chia seed mixture from the fridge and stir well. If it’s a bit solid and you’d prefer it a bit looser – add a little extra coconut milk. 
  2. In a small sauce pan, add the coconut shavings and almonds on a medium heat and lightly toast them. 
  3. While the coconut it toasting, chop up the kiwi fruit and prunes.
  4. Add the chia seed mixture to a bowl, and place the kiwi fruit and prunes with the toasted coconut and almonds on the top. 
  5. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Use Organic where ever possible – Overnight setting in the fridge is required, however not 100% necessary – 15 mins ‘swell’ time is thus required from the chia seeds.
