Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp Chia seeds
  • ½ cup Coconut Milk (I used a light coconut milk)
  • ½ cup spring water
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla (pod, extract, paste, as preferred)
  • 1 cup fresh cherries, pits removed and diced
  • ⅓ cup Goji berries
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup (or to taste)
  • 2 digestive cookies (gluten free, sugar free if available)
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa nibs
  • 20g raw chocolate (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp pepitas
  • 1 Tbsp pistachios
Instructions
  1. Chia pudding must be prepared half a day in advance at least so I recommend doing this the night before. Add Chia seeds, coconut milk, water, vanilla and agave syrup in a bowl. Mix well and cover, refrigerating overnight. Check consistency of chia pudding. It should not be watery, however if it seems too firm for your liking, add a little more water and stir. Keep in fridge.
  2. Place diced cherries, Goji berries and agava syrup in small bowl, stir and set aside. If you prefer a compote style fruit topping, allow the mixture to sit for at least half a day in fridge. Goji berries will soften and cherries will be less tart.
  3. In a food process or Thermomix, place all Crumb ingredients in bowl and process until medium to fine (one a couple of seconds on Speed 3 for Thermomix).
  4. To prepare, place 2 tablespoons of crumb in bottom of glass cup or a serving jar. Place chia pudding on top of crumb, then layer some fruit on top of pudding.
  5. Garnish with whole nuts, nibs or choc coated nibs.
