Pour chia seeds into glass bowl then cover
with water and stir. Let stand for twenty
minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the
mixture reaches a light, gel-like consistency, the porridge is ready for consumption.

and pineapple work well in a chia porridge.
Mix and match fruit with maple syrup or
nutmeg, cinnamon, or ground clove.
1 Tbsp maple syrup, or raw agave
Chopped germinated walnuts, almonds,
or sunflower seeds
cinnamon, ground clove or nutmeg
2 cups puréed fruit of choice
(I prefer apples or mixed berries.)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together puréed fruit and seeds. There is no need to
pre-mix the seeds with water this time. Let
sit for 20 minutes.

the dehydrator tray. Spread the chia and
fruit mixture onto the teflex sheet on the
dehydrator tray, in a thin layer.
Dehydrate for 6-10 hours at 105°F.

is a tasty treat for you and the kids.
I take these everywhere I go because they
contain nutrients that keep me satisfied and
