Chocolate chia pudding

3rd September 2021

With just four ingredients, this is a simple dish to make in advance (you’ll need to chill it in the fridge for at least two hours). It makes a good breakfast- the chia seeds will power you through the morning  –  or serve as a dessert.


Ingredients for two generous servings:

150 ml of plant milk e.g. oat, coconut, almond or hemp

2-3 dried apricots or dates (stoned)

25 grams  of chia seeds

2 tablespoons of cacoa powder (add more cacoa powder if you are a chocolate fan)

Optional extra- berries to serve

Simmer the apricots or dates in a little water for about five minutes until soft. When cool mash them to a paste.  Mix together the mashed apricots/dates, milk, chia seeds and cacoa. Spoon into two serving dishes. Chill in the fridge for at least two hours. Decorate with berries. And that’s it!
