Ingredients

Serves 2

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (swap with any milk of your choice)
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup coconut yoghurt (or your preferred yoghurt)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp. flaked almonds
  • Optional extra toppings – pumpkin seeds, berries, flax seeds

Method:

  1. Combine the milk in a bowl with the chia seeds, vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Cover and place in the fridge for approx. 20-30 minutes (or overnight), until the chia seeds have expanded and absorbed much of the liquid. If the pudding is too runny add a tablespoon of chia until the desired consistency is achieved.
  3. Till each glass with ½ of the chia pudding mixture then top with the yoghurt.
  4. To serve, top with the sliced banana, coconut, almonds and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  5. Enjoy x
