Chia Berry Pots
A super easy, yummy recipe that is so versatile. We’ve put raspberries on this one, but add whatever you like, blueberries, redcurrants, strawberries, banana, mango. The choice is yours! Chia seeds are fast becoming a store cupboard staple as they’re a great source of omega 3 and fibre as well as providing calcium, protein and iron.
Ingredients -serves 1
200ml of nut milk (almond or hazelnut
1/2 fresh vanilla pod
2 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp unsweetened dessicated coconut
100g approximately of berries of your choice - blueberries and raspberries work well
1 tbsp toasted nuts
In a bowl mix the chia, coconut and chia seeds. Cut open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds into the bowl. Add the nut or coconut milk and mix together. Pour into a nice drinking glass or glass jug or jar which makes it look more attractive and fun to eat! Refrigerate for at least three hours, ideally overnight to make sure it has set. Whilst it is setting toast the nuts over a high heat in a frying pan (no oil needed). They should be just lightly toasted. When your chia pot is set, top with the berries and sprinkle over the nuts.
Tip: This is a super easy recipe which you can adapt very easily to suit your taste. If you don't like coconut swap it for a tablespoon of maple syrup to add sweetness. Vary the fruit topping, slices of banana, mango, kiwi, strawberrries also work very well. Leave out the nuts and sprinkle over some seeds or some homemade granola to add a bit of crunch.
