To say I have an addiction to these breakfast pots would be a bit of an understatement! I’ve had one every day this week, so I wanted to share this creamy greens almond chai breakfast pot with you because it’s rather special.
It’s special because not only is it creamy and delicious but it’s also fructose, dairy and sugar free. I love all the gorgeous smoothie bowls and nice creams that are showcasing their gloopy deliciousness all over Instagram but they’re often piled high with fruit and whilst I’m not adverse to anyone eating fruit I wanted to share a fruit free alternative for those of you wanting to cut down on your fructose intake but still enjoy an eye candy chai breakfast pot.
Fruit contains lots of antioxidants and nutrients but it’s still sugar at the end of the day and I would keep a watchful eye on your intake if you have an autoimmune condition or candida as it can feed the bacteria in your gut. Vegetables like carrot, beetroot and things like coconut can be added for sweetness and i’ve used some of these things in this smoothie bowl.
If you’re following the Paleo diet, you’re probably thinking but are chai seeds primal? There’s so much debate about this. This article from Dr Cordain on are Chai seeds Paleo is worth a read if you’re interested in the science but in a nutshell yes they are, but I’d only have them occasionally as a treat so this creamy greens almond chai breakfast pot is for your treat day.
Chai breakfast pot
- 3 tablespoons chai seeds
- 260ml almond milk
- 3 carrots
- 3 sticks celery
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 lime
- 1 avocado
- Handful of spinach
- 120ml almond milk (I’m using Plenish unsweetened almond milk as it’s really creamy)
- 10g sunflower seeds
- 10g pumpkin seeds
- 10g linseeds
- 25g coconut chips
Mix the chai seeds and almond milk in a jam jar and leave in the fridge for half an hour to thicken. You can always make this the night before until you’re ready for breakfast.
Preheat the oven to 180C (fan assisted). Toast the coconut chips in the oven for about 1 minute until the edges start to golden, allow to cool.
Juice the ingredients in the ‘juice’ list above.
Add all the Vitamix ingredients to your machine or Nutribullet equivalent, along with the juice. blitz. If you really feel you need it sweeter you can add the juice from an apple.
Stir the almond chai breakfast pot mix, add more almond milk if too thick.
Spoon the clean greens in layers with the almond chai and top with seeds and coconut chips.
Gloopy fructose free goodness!
