To say I am a fan of Cinnamon is a understatement! Cinnamon porridge, cinnamon loaf, cinnamon smoothies, I sprinkle it on and in almost everything. I especially love it in winter as its typically known as a warming food so it is perfect to use to spice up your recipes. Did you know Cinnamon is also great for speeding up your metabolism and regulating blood sugar levels?

Ingredients

3 table spoons chia seeds (black or white)

1 tablespoon  Coconut Protein Superfood Blend

1 cup  almond or coconut milk

2 teaspoons organic cinnamon

1 tablespoon coconut cream

 

Instructions

In a large glass/jar or small bowl mix chia seeds, protein, cinnamon and almond or coconut milk. Stir until chia seeds separate and start to swell.

You may need to add more milk if consistency is too dry, it should be a little runny so the chia seed don’t clump together.

The chia seeds will expand and soak up most of the liquid.

Place into the fridge to set for at least 10 minutes. Can be left overnight.

Once set, remove from fridge and top with coconut cream and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Feel free to add your favourite fruit and nuts for extra crunch! Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Make a few in advance and have them on hand for snacks. If your feeling the cold – chia puddings can be heated up in the microwave or stove. Just add more milk if needed.
