Plant-Based Breakfast Recipe: Blueberry Banana Chia Bowl

Blueberry Banana Chia Bowl

I’m obsessed with chia bowls. I have to admit, it took me awhile to figure out how to make them in a way that I really like and now I can’t get enough. These bowls are a great plant-based way to get your day going. The key for me was not letting the chia seeds soak too long — I can’t do the overnight versions because the seeds get too soggy for me. Instead, I let them soak for about 15-30 minutes.

What are the health benefits of chia bowls?

  • Chia seeds are high in anti-inflammatory omega-3s and fiber to help keep you full. They also are a great source of complete plant protein.

  • Hemp seeds are another great source of protein and omega-3s

  • Coconut is a great source of fiber, iron and healthy fat

  • Cacao nibs have a ton of anti-oxidants, iron, calcium, and magnesium

  • Blueberries provide a ton of beneficial antioxidants
