Cheeky Bowl

I’ve completed the second week of my three week grain-free diet, and I must say it has gotten easier! The biggest challenge is having a variety of snacks ready to grab and a filling breakfast. You don’t realize how much you rely on grains for your first meal of the day whether you enjoy oatmeal, millet, cereal, toast, pancakes… I’ve been experimenting with different chia pudding recipes since they are a breakfast super food! Chia seeds are high in fibre, omega-3’s, and protein. This means you don’t need to eat a large serving to satisfy your hunger. And you’ll stay full for a long time! This is my cheeky bowl because it combines strawberries, banana, and chocolate. It’s like dessert for brekkie!


Yield: 3-4 servings


  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 c strawberries, chopped
  • 1/4 c hazelnuts
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • dash of pink sea salt
  • 3/4 c almond milk
  • 1/3 c chia seeds


  • fresh fruit
  • nuts and seeds
  • cocoa nibs
  • coconut cream



  1. In a food processor combine all ingredients except for the chia seeds. Puree until fairly smooth
  2. Transfer the pureed mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the chia seeds
  3. Refrigerate over night

Tip: Transfer into small jars or containers and keep in the fridge for easy breakfasts on-the-go!
