chia seed pudding

A great breakfast that you can prepare the night before, this is based on chia seeds, which are a rich source of antioxidants and fibre (with the help of the chia seeds, this pudding provides over a third of your recommended daily fibre intake).

When soaked in a liquid they become gelatinous, with a texture very similar to that of tapioca. The blackberry coulis adds a sharpness that is balanced by the addition of honey.

Serves 4 • 270 calories per serving


400ml almond milk

3 tbsp runny honey

100g white chia seeds

For the coulis

Grated zest of ½ lime

150g blackberries

1 tbsp runny honey

Fresh mint leaves

1. Put the almond milk, honey and chia seeds in a bowl. Cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge overnight.

2. For the coulis, combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth. Press through a sieve into a small bowl. Cover with clingfilm and keep in the fridge.

3. In the morning, stir the pudding, then pour it into four small bowls or glasses. Top with the coulis and garnish with a few blackberries and some fresh mint leaves.
