Recipe by Dr. Taz Bhatia
This is one of my family’s favorites—you may want to double or even triple the recipe (it disappears fast). This also has healthy chia seeds, and is gluten- and lactose-free, which means that it provides energy without inflammation that can be caused by processed foods. Since you can make it the night before, it’s ready to go for a fast breakfast or a take-along snack.
