Chia seeds are supercharged with anti-inflammatory omega-3s, plenty of fibre to get things moving and a great source of calcium and manganese – both crucial to optimum bone health!

Prep time: 5 mins⁠
Cooking time: None
Serves 1


  • 2-3 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 tbsp mixed seeds

  • 1 tbsp milled flax seeds

  • 1/2 cup nut milk

  • 0.5 cup frozen berries

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • Plant-based yoghurt to garnish

  • Water as needed


  • Put the chia and seeds into a small mixing bowl
  • Add the nut milk and enough water (usually the same amount as the almond milk, but it depends)
  • Stir/whisk up and allow to sit for a few minutes. The chia and seeds will start to absorb the liquid
  • Add more liquid to ensure the consistency isn’t too dry but also not too wet – it takes a bit of testing to figure out your own preference
  • Cover and place in the fridge, allow to set overnight
  • In the morning, to serve, spoon out into a bowl
  • In a small saucepan, add the frozen berries, some cinnamon and a small amount of water, bring to a simmer in order to soften the berries 
  • Spoon the berry mix over the chia mix and add a dollop of yoghurt
