Fresh or frozen berries (raspberry, currant, blueberry)
Granola (use home made or store-bought)
Sugar-free natural yogurt or 100 ml coconut milk
1 tbsp. chia seed
Honey, syrup to taste
Let’s make the chia-pudding first. The usual ratio here is 1 part chia seed to 2-3 parts of liquid (cow’s/vegetable milk, yogurt, kefir*, fresh juice)
Add chia seed to yogurt or coconut milk, mix together and put it in the fridge. The seeds have to swell.
If you are using frozen berries, defrost them first. The whip them in a blender. Add honey or syrup if the berries are sour.
Put blended berries, chia-pudding and granola on a plate. Top with nuts, seeds and whole berries.
