By Mira Manek.

I’ve just realised, looking at my most recent recipes, that I’ve been focusing rather a lot on sweet things! Creating new breakfast options that are healthy, light, that look and taste delicious and can be eaten any time of day – well nothing makes me happier. And so of course, here’s yet another – this one is super simple. I decided to use coconut yoghurt for this pot and in-season strawberries. And I’d just baked my date and pumpkin seed granola, so just added that on top – to give that crunch and sweetness. It’s prefect as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, if you fancy something sweet, you can carry it with you and have it after a yoga class or workout – or simply have it for breakfast.

This recipe is dairy-free, refined sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan.

Ingredients | Serves 1

  • 15g chia
  • 60ml almond milk
  • 4-5 tablespoons coconut yoghurt
  • 5 strawberries, chopped or sliced
  • 2 tablespoons homemade granola

Method:

  1. Place the chia into the pot first, pour almond milk over the top and stir well until the chia expand and become a gel-like consistency (around 5 minutes).
  2. Leave this in freezer for 5 minutes if you can, so that it can set and the yoghurt can be layered properly – this step is not necessary.
  3. Now layer with some of the coconut yoghurt, then strawberries, more yoghurt, more strawberries and finally the last spoon of yoghurt.
  4. Add the granola and it’s read to eat!
