Black ‘n Blueberry Overnight Chia Seeds

Overnight oats with a twist: chia seeds! Sometimes I will mix oats and chia together (cheaper than straight chia alone) but I splurged on this recipe to experience the full chia seed effect. To boost the protein content I added protein powder, but this is totally optional as the chia & almond milk provide about 8 grams of protein already. PS. Getting creative with toppings is the most fun part for me!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (Kaizen Vegan brand)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup frozen blackberries and blueberries

How to:

  1. Whisk almond milk, chia seeds, protein powder and cinnamon in a bowl.
  2. Place in fridge overnight.
  3. In the morning remove from fridge.
  4. Puree frozen fruit in food processor until creamy (add a splash of almond milk).
  5. Layer fruit with chia seed mixture and top with whatever you want (here I have goji berries and coconut).

    1. Thank you so much! For some reason layering instead of mixing all together is just much more exciting to eat!
