We're all about easy nutrition, which is why we love chia! A couple of months ago, we shared our super simple recipe for a Coffee Protein Chia Bowl, featuring Rumble Coffee Bean. Now we're back with another five-minute recipe for a delicious, protein-packed breakfast: the Vanilla Maple Protein Chia Bowl!
We <3 Chia
Chia seeds are rich in protein, Omega 3's, fibre, and antioxidants - just like Rumble Supershake. Most chia bowls are made by mixing chia seeds with milk or nut milks, but by substituting Rumble as your liquid, you're adding in even more protein (from grass-fed cows), omega 3's (from flaxseed oil), fibre, and organic veggies. PLUS you'll get the light and creamy taste of Rumble Vanilla Maple (from organic vanilla bean and maple syrup!).
To make your chia bowl, all you need to do is mix chia seeds with Rumble, wait at least 15 minutes, then add some tasty toppings. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid, thicken it, and turn it into a lovely texture similar to tapioca pudding.
Chia bowls need to soak for at least 15 minutes to 'bloom'. You can let your chia bowl rest in the fridge overnight if you like, but we like to stir it up first thing in the morning, then come back to it after a run or shower.
2/3 cup Rumble Vanilla Maple (half a carton)
3 tbsp whole chia seeds
Toppings - here we've used coconut flakes, fresh granola, pomegranate, and berries. But you can also try sliced banana, nut butter, chocolate chips, and chopped nuts!
In a small bowl or jar, mix the Rumble with the chia seeds, stirring well. Scrape the sides of the bowl and try to coat all of the seeds (instead of letting them float on top). Put your bowl in the fridge to keep chilled while soaking. Leave it at least 15 minutes, or overnight. For best results, we like to stir the bowl a couple of times as it soaks.
Once all the chia seeds have expanded, you're ready to add toppings! We love how granola, coconut flakes, and berries complement the flavour of Vanilla Maple, but try anything you have on hand.
Whatever you add, it's a good idea to include something with a bit of crunch and texture.
