We think National Breakfast Week might just be our favourite week of the year! If you’ve been following us on Instagram, then you’ll know why, as this week we’ve been whipping up some healthy breakfasts that are not only delicious, but nutritious too.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we believe that it should NEVER be boring. So check out our recipes below, and wow your loved ones this weekend with a tasty breakfast. (You can thank us later!)
Raw Cacao Pops aka “Healthy Coco Pops”
Makes 4/5 servings
400g Raw Sprouted Buckweat (we used Planet Organic’s)
2 tbsp Chi Coconut Oil (melted)
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tsp baobab or lucuma (we used Aduna Baobab)
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp cacao nibs
Mix coconut oil and buckwheat in a large bowl. Add the cacao powder and baobab, and stir to ensure the buckwheat is evenly coated. (Optional: add maple syrup to taste, and cacao nibs for extra goodness and crunch.)
Serve with chopped bananas and a generous splash of Chi 100% Dairy Free Coconut Milk
(Tip: store the remainder of your cacao pops in a clean and empty coconut oil jar, or your leftover buckwheat pouch. We love recycling!)
Chi Chocolate Porridge

500ml Chi Chocolate Coconut Milk
2 bananas (mashed)
1 cup porridge oats
