Topped with pears & sour cherries
Chia seeds give a rich creaminess – if you don’t want to add chia, just don’t add as much milk. These amazing little seeds boost the nutritional value of the breakfast tenfold. They look a bit like poppy seeds and come in a variety of colours: black, white and grey. I use the white ones here. Chia seeds were the food of choice of Aztec and Mayan warriors, and a single tablespoon would keep them going for 24 hours. They are high in protein, so they’re perfect for breakfast time. You can also use them in smoothies and baking.
