Vanilla Chai Chia Pot

chaipot1   chaipot2 There is nothing more Christmassy than the smell of sweet spices in the atmosphere. Sipping a chai latte whilst wrapped in a blanket or drinking mulled wine with friends at a Christmas market, there is something so comforting about these blends. As I posted my ultimate chai latte recipe a while back, I decided to try something a bit different for my Advent Calendar. Breakfast is quite difficult in the Winter, especially when you have to leave the house early and it is dark more often than not. All I want to eat is something comforting and warming, and this is the just the thing. It is very difficult to get a healthy, hot breakfast when you’re on the go, so this chilled pudding is the perfect solution. My chia pot takes less than 5 minutes to make the night before, and by the morning it is ready to go! Although it is taken from the fridge, the blend of cinnamon, ginger and cloves will warm you up in no time and the protein-packed chia seeds keep you full all morning. The sweet almond milk and vanilla make this pot a real, indulgent treat, just like eating dessert for breakfast! Or why not make some smaller pots and serve as a special, festive dessert? The combination of flavours are bound to impress!
