DID YOU KNOW? Chia seeds are a source of omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, protein & antioxidants. They promote better recovery by reducing chronic inflammation associated with high intensity and high volume training. Chia seeds also decrease exercise-induced muscle damage and promote muscle-protein synthesis.
Ingredients (serves 2)
1/4 cup chia seeds
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
To a mixing bowl, add all ingredients. Whisk until combined*.
Divide mixture into 2 glasses. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least a few hours to allow time for it to set).
*Don’t want to whisk? You could alternatively add all ingredients into a blender and blend until combined.
