4 organic medjool dates, seeds removed
1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
Juice of half a lemon
1 nut milk bag

method

  1. The night before soak the following in water (leave on the bench with a plate to cover): Bowl One - Medium: Cover the almonds with water Bowl Two - Small: Cover chia seeds with water (forms a gel) Bowl Three - Large: Combine oats, raisins, pepitas, sunflower seeds, dates and cranberries.
  2. To make the almond milk: In the morning, drain & rinse the almonds.
  3. Then put approx 3/4 cup almonds at a time in a blender with water, process into a milky liquid. Empty into a jug. Repeat until you have used all the almonds.
  4. Strain through a nut milk bag and set aside. (Keep the pulp for chocolate or meatloaf recipes).
  5. To make the Chia Seed Porridge: Add chia seed gel to blender.
  6. Drain and rinse the oat mixture and add a little (about a third) to the blender with chia, some almond milk, dash of cinnamon, dash of ginger and a small squeeze of lemon juice.
  7. Blend until smooth. You may need to do this in stages depending on the size of your blender.
  8. Reserve some of the oat/seed mixture unblended so that it adds colour and texture to the overall mixture.
  9. Once all stages have been completed, stir in reserved oat/seed mixture and keep porridge in a lidded Tupperware in the fridge.

To Serve Spoon chia seed porridge into bowls, top with almond milk and some fresh blueberries, banana's, strawberries etc. Keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days.
