Chia pudding is a great breakfast staple, as a source of plant-based omegas and a great way to hydrate. Chia seeds prepared in this way are good for your gut and in this recipe the fermented fruit adds a probiotic boost with the granola adding that all important crunch. You can also serve this creamy chia with extra Udo’s yoghurt.
Pour the milk into a glass jar, then add the chia seeds with the remaining ingredients and mix together with a fork to remove any lumps.
Place the chia in the fridge to set overnight, remembering that you can adjust the consistency of the mixture with a little extra milk when you come to serve it, if needed.
Place the fruits, honey, water and probiotics in a jar, then carefully mix everything together. Cover the mixture then leave to stand overnight, outside of the fridge.
The next day when the mixture is lightly fermented, store it in the fridge in a sealed container until ready to use.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl, then place the granola onto a small baking tray lined with baking parchment.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until crisp and golden, then remove from the oven and allow to cool entirely, then store in a jar ready for your next meal.
In a small jar or glass, layer the chia with fermented fruit at the bottom, followed by the chia and topped with granola. You can also add plant-based yoghurt and fresh fruit on top to suit your individual taste.
