Tropical Chia Bowl to Perk Up Your Morning

Tropical Chia Bowl to Perk Up Your Morning

I love a good morning routine and starting my days with energy and of course a yummy treat. Every superior morning routine starts the night before, and my breakfast hack is no different. This Tropical Chia Pudding recipe is so easy and a refreshing start to any work day. It’s the perfect treat to cool off hot Miami mornings, plus it’s only a few steps so anyone can add it to their current routine. 

The Reader’s Digest version of this recipe: all you have to do is soak chia seeds in a probiotic rich kefir, like Lifeway Kefir, overnight. Dats it boo boo. In the morning top with your favorite fruits and granola for a filling breakfast that is gut healthy and delicious.

… but you guys know I’m not just a quick soaker. I have a specific recipe I’m obsessed with, and today I’m getting down to the nitty gritty, so you can make this at home too. 

My breakfast hack is full of immune boosting antioxidants, probiotics, and protein. Chia seeds are a healthy superfood with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and prebiotic fiber. Chia helps with the absorption of the probiotics naturally found in kefir.

My kefir of choice is Lifeway Kefir because it is rich probiotics which help support a healthy gut where 70-80 percent of the cells that make up the immune system are located. Kefir contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), a popular ingredient in skin care products, and you guys KNOW I’m all about glowy skin.

Also an 8 oz serving of Lifeway low-fat kefir contains 11 grams of natural protein and provides 30% of your calcium needs.
