Chia Seed Breakfast


Serves 1

Chia seeds are a great source of fibre, with each tablespoon of these tiny seeds containing 5.8g of fibre.  That’s as much as 2 slices of many grainy breads contain.  It is also a good source of vegetarian Omega 3, it is high in antioxidants and it makes a lovely creamy dessert or breakfast.


  • 2 Tbs chia seeds
  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 2/3 cup low fat plain yoghurt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Strawberry or peach slice for decoration



Mash the banana well, then add the seeds, yoghurt and water.  Mix well and leave overnight.  Add a little more water if too thick.

Serve with berries or a canned peach on top for decoration.
