Berry Coconut Chia Cups; breakfast or dessert?

Who doesn’t love dessert/breakfast foods? I’m pretty sure that’s how doughnuts, pastries and such things started. So these Berry Coconut Chia Cups are a perfect, really filling, alternative to all that refined sugar. I’ve had to find a way to be better at mornings. Too often I would be well into mid-morning and realise that all I’ve had to ‘eat’ is coffee. With that in mind, I decided to search the interwebs for breakfast ideas and start to try some of them at home. There used to be a cafe in town that did a chia breakfast cup and it was my favourite.

Mmmmm. Yum. This week’s inspiration comes to you via my currently being renovated kitchen. I’ve chosen¬†some new tiles, Mr Suger finished the cut through to the dining/living room… It’s all happening and I’m dreaming of dinner parties.
