Chia seeds come from my native country Mexico. We used to served the in lemonades or just adding them into any juice and make “Agua con Chia”. The chia seed make a gelatinous effect after being soaked for a couple of minutes (around 10) and it blends with the liquid that is served. My following recipe make a yummy example for a fast and delicious breakfast.

Ingredients:
5 Tbs Chia Seeds
1/3 cup of persimmon (finely chopped)
1/3 cup of coconut (finely chopped)
1/3 cup of pomegranate grains
1 tsp of ginger
1 1/2 cup of your favorite nut milk

 

Place the ingredients into a soup bowl and add the nut milk.

Mix the milk with the fruit and store on the fridge for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Facts: Chia seeds have 5 times more calcium than milk, so in this serving you at least have 50% of the RDA of calcium, 60% of iron, 60% of magnesium, and of course omega 3 and 6? Well you get more than 500%!! yes more than 16 grms of Omega 3.
