Oats So Good Chia Porridge

By Esther Boateng

This warm bowl of chia and oatmeal porridge is like rocket fuel for your body. The chia seeds, hemp seeds, full-fat milk or cream, and ghee will help you power through your morning or even your entire day, but don’t take my word for it; try it for yourself.

Ingredients like chia seeds, full fat cream, and ghee help you feel satiated for longer. If you need extra sustenance, add a spoonful or two of chia seeds or a scoop of your favorite protein powder. These types of ingredients will likely thicken your porridge slightly, which is ok if you’re like me and enjoy a thick and creamy porridge. If your porridge thickens too quickly when you cook it, add extra water, milk, or cream to reach your desired consistency.  

If you know in advance that you want to make this for breakfast a few days in a row, it might be worth making a separate batch of soaked chia seeds to store in the fridge and use as and when needed. I like to do this even when I don’t have a particular recipe in mind; it comes in handy if you want to add it to small meals or snacks, such as smoothies or yogurts.
