Chia seeds are high in plant protein, fibre and omega 3 and expand up to 11 times their size in your tummy. Great way to keep full when trying to lose weight.

(for this recipe I used pears, nectarines, cherries and strawberries)

1 tbsp vanilla
¼ tsp cinnamon
½ cup shredded coconut

2) Combine almond milk, chia seeds, orange juice, zest, vanilla and cinnamon in a small pitcher and stir.
3) Pour mixture on top of fruit
4) Top fruit bowls with shredded coconut
5) Refrigerate overnight.
