#2 Put 1 cups of soy milk, almond milk or whatever milk you drink into the jar with the oats
#3 Put a heaping tablespoon of Chia seeds in. You can buy them at any health food store.
#4 The fun part. Add fresh fruit. I used peach and raspberry here but I also used blueberry and strawberry on another batch.
#5 I use 1 teaspoon or tablespoon of honey because I'm a pregnant wimp and want a little sweetness but this can be avoided if you don't want that extra sugar.
That's it. Stir together, screw on top and leave in fridge overnight. In the morning I microwaved mine 2 minutes and added a little more soy milk to loosen it up. IT WAS DIVINE I TELL YOU.
I might just develop a serious addiction to this stuff!!!!!!!!!!
Oh and by the way here's the REAL recipe if you want better instructions and more ideas for flavors. She chose to use Greek yogurt in hers which I did not care for.
- have more Omega 3 fatty acids than flax seed (important for heart health)
- are the richest non-marine whole food source of Omega-3 (better than salmon)
- absorb 10 times their weight in water and transform into a gel-like substance--great for athletes for maintaining hydration and helps with weight loss by making you feel full longer
- are as high in protein as quinoa
- are loaded with calcium, potassium, Vitamin B, and anti-oxidants
- help balance blood sugar via the gelling action of the seed and it’s unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber that slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars
- have a neutral taste so they will take on the other flavors in a recipe
- can be eaten whole (unlike flax seed); they don't have to be ground before adding them to food in order to digest them and benefit from their nutrients
- have a two year shelf life, stored at room temperature (flax seeds quickly become rancid and loose their nutritional value)
Seriously, PLEASE try this recipe. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed and it takes 5 minutes and you don;t have to cook anything!!!!!!!!!!
