Chia pudding is popular on cafe menus at the moment. You may be surprised how easy it is to make. Be creative and adapt it. Prunes are a favourite addition of mine but dates, banana, cinnamon or berries are also scrumptious. Adding nuts and seeds just before serving gives the pudding a crunchy texture. On its own, without any exciting extras, it reminds me a bit of boarding school years ago.
|12||Dried prunes (Main)|
|1||Orange, zest and juice|

- Place the prunes in a small pot with the orange zest and juice. Heat slowly for 15 minutes until the prunes are soft. Add a little water if needed.
- Place the chia, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a bowl. Cover and leave overnight.
- In the morning fold the prunes through or layer in a bowl. Top with nuts, banana or other fruit.
