By now you all know we’re a little obsessed with cookbooks, recipes and healthy eating. When I caught wind Lola Berry had released another book I rushed out and picked up without any regret at all. Here is one of my all time favourite sweet treats from the book!
375ml (1 ½ cups) almond milk (or try coconut milk)
80g (1/2 cup) chia seeds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ vanilla pod, split and scraped
130g (1 cup) mixed berries
About 150g (1 cup) Crunchy Paleo Granola (page 20)
Sprinkle of dry chia seeds, to serve
Edible flowers, to serve (if you want to go all out)
To make the chia pudding, put your nut milk, chia seeds, maple syrup and vanilla seeds into a jar, screw the lid on tight and give it a good shake, then place in the fridge for about 4 hours, or overnight is best. The chia seeds will expand to about three times their size. Then your pud is done! It’s time to get layering.
Now take two clear glasses, spoon a layer of chia pud in the bottom, then pop on a layer of berries, followed by a layer of Crunchy Paleo Granola. I like to make three layers, then top everything off with a few fresh berries and chia seeds. These will last 3 days in the fridge.
I cannot recommend Lola’s book enough! We make at least two of her recipes a week and we’ve never been disappointed by lack of flavour or ease of cooking. This is a great one if you’re wanting to extend your weekly recipe stash or want to start incorporating easy, healthy food into your weekly routine. All the recipes are gluten, wheat free and have little dairy and refined sugar included (most of the time I substitute the dairy for something else – super easy!) but still have loads of flavour.
