Acai Blueberry Chia

We’re staying at a Bach on Great Barrier Island which is a beautiful, remote island near Auckland. There’s no power here – homes use solar and generators so it’s quite restrictive with appliances. No blender! Which means no smoothies. 
So I’ve tried to be as creative as I can instead. Last night I soaked Chia seeds in almond milk and acai powder and it was delicious! Here’s the recipe:


  • 1 cup Chia seeds
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Matakana Acai bowl mix
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Coconut yoghurt
  • Granola
  • Strawberries sliced
  • Pomegranate seeds


The night before: mix Chia seeds, almond milk and acai powder in a container until well covered and stirred. Cover and put in fridge. 

The morning: layer bowl with Chia first, then blueberries (we used frozen), coconut yoghurt, granola. Top with berries and pomegranate seeds.
