These are great to replace sugary yoghurts and are a good dairy-free option for those with intolerances. It takes only minutes to make up and can be done the night before. Children can choose their own fruit for toppings which gets them involved in the cooking.

Ingredients

6 tbsp chia seeds

2 cups milk of choice (dairy, almond, coconut)

3 tbsp maple syrup

fruit of choice to serve

Method

1. Pour the chia seeds into a bowl, add the milk and maple syrup and stir for a few minutes – this will ensure the chia doesn't stick together. Place the bowl in the fridge overnight.

2. In the morning, take the chia out the fridge, divide between six pots and top with chopped fruit. Optional: drizzle honey over the top.
