Chia Chai Trifle

Kale, goji berries, raw foods, have been all the craze recently.  There’s always a new diet, something we should be eating, something we shouldn’t.  I’m quite happy to stick to the basics.  I eat what makes me feel good and what makes me feel happy.

Luckily this breakfast (inspired by my sister), makes me feel good, feel happy AND is a superfood!Chai Chia trifle

Hannah had been going out to a local café and getting Chai Chia Trifle.  She said that she couldn’t believe that she’d go out and buy something so similar to muesli (which she eats nearly daily), so decided to give making this trifle a go.
After her attempt she advised me of what would be her preferred ratios, and so I gave it a go.

I boiled up a pot of stove top chai, milky and honey sweet.

Soaked the seeds in the tea overnight and simply served it up with mixed berries and some homemade yoghurt.

    1. I was surprised to be full until late morning. I’m an eggs for breakfast every day kind of girl, because I get some hungry. But I was definitely satisfied.

  1. I have never really tried to replicate something I have eaten in a restaurant but we don’t eat out very often. I have never tried these seeds though I see them all over the net. Maybe one day. Your dish looks very pretty.

  2. This looks so great! I let chia seeds soak in coconut milk and then stir them through my juice. I think it is so awesome to re create something at home that you pay big bucks for at a cafe!
