Three Chias for Chia!

Chia, cashew and cacao puddings

Adapted from a recipe of Sarah Wilson's

1/2 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup cacao nibs
375ml milk
Sprinkle of grind cinnamon

Place the chia seeds in a large bowl. Finely chop the cacao and cashews with a mezzaluna and add to the chia. Pour over the milk and add the cinnamon. Give a stir and leave to thicken for 10 minutes or so. Divide into 4 ramekins and refrigerate until set.

It has an interesting texture, a bit like tapioca, but if the slightly granular feel isn't for you, I think you could blend it with a stick blender to make it smooth. I serve mine with a tablespoon of greek yogurt on the top.

I winced slightly at the price, about £6 per pack of both chia and nibs, but if you buy in bulk, or better still, catch a Holland and Barrett buy one get one half price offer and it's not too bad. Worth trying if you miss a sweet treat at the end of the day.
