Quick and Easy Chia Bowl Recipe For Food Prep That Packs Fiber and Protein
Chia bowls are one of the best things to prep for a delicious and nutritious light meal or snack whenever you’re ready. Chia seeds are a wonderful addition to any diet because they are super high in protein and the carbs in them are almost all fiber, resulting in about only 1 net carb per tablespoon. I try to always have chia bowls made with Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds prepped in the fridge for quick healthy meals when I need to grab and go!
Today, I’m making chia bowls using milkadamia Macadamia Milk. 💯 I like this brand a lot because it’s dairy free, soy free, gluten free, carrageenan free, non GMO, and kosher. These are so simple. You can easily make a number of bowls in under 30 minutes.
- 2 tbsp black chia seeds
- 1/2 cup macadamia milk
- 3 grams dried berries (blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries)
- 5 grams nuts (pecans or sliced almonds)
Everything is organic and unsweetened with no additives! 🙌🏾
Pour 1/2 cup macadamia milk into a small bowl or jar. Then, add 2 tbsp black chia seeds and stir for about a minute or until all seeds are evenly dispersed in liquid. This is important so that the seeds don’t all clump together. Now, add 3 grams of dried berries and 5 grams nuts. Cover and store in fridge for up to a week.

The fruit and nuts are mixed and matched to give a little variety. I didn’t add any sweetener to this because I’m keto and for me this is plenty sweet. If I were to add sweetener, it would be no more than 1 tsp stevia.
If you do want a sweet treat, try adding 1 tsp real maple syrup. Chia bowls also make a perfect desserts! 😋
If you really want to shake things up, why not make your own nut milk. Check out my Simple Walnut Milk Recipe for a Clean Plant-Based Alternative to Dairy.
