I do apologise, this is going to be another one of my wonderfully vague recipes. Although I would not call this a particularly quick recipe (who can argue something is quick when you soak it all night?); it will make your morning routine more simple. Not having to think beyond “should I grate in that apple or throw in a handful of sultanas” is sometimes the most complex thing I can determine when I get up for work.
Anyway chia pudding is convenient, really healthy and can really easily be adapted into a vegan recipe or made with things you really like.
To make chia pudding for 1 you will need:
Milk of your choice (mine is coconut milk)
Yogurt (I used Alpro strawberry and rhubarb yogurt)
The topping of your choice (sliced banana, grated apple, etc etc)
Pour a small quantity of chia seeds into a cereal bowl so a thin layer covers the bottom. Cover this with about 2cm milk. Add 1 large spoonful of yogurt. Stir this so that all the seeds are as evenly dispersed as you can manage. Cover this and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning stir again. Add your toppings and serve. Enjoy your beautifully simple and delicious breakfast.
