There’s no denying the love I have for my bed. And I love love love a late lie in. It’s always amazing when I get a mid week day minus an alarm clock, and today was one of those days. Hallelujah – literally no idea if that is spelled correctly. Sorry. I digress.
In preparation for optimising said lie in I prep breakfast the night before… you can tell I’ve really thought this through can’t you? I do love breakfast being ready for me when I wake, Chia Seed Puddings and Overnight Oats have been a game changer for this. And it couldn’t be easier to be honest… and you feel pretty smug the next day when the prep is all done..or maybe that’s just me.
This combination of fig and rose makes me smile. I love them together in anything. Porridge, smoothies, cakes you name it. Also, look how pretty it looks! Ignore what you were told as a child. Play with your food to your hearts content…
What you’ve got here is a basic blue print for a pudding. Play around with flavour options… I love Vanilla and fresh berries. Carob and Orange works great too. Mix it up.
3Tbs Chia seeds
3/4 Cup Almond Milk or milk of choice
Splash of rose water
1/4 Tsp of Vanilla paste.
1tsp of something sweet. Maple, honey, agave.
Whatever you feel like.
Pop all of the pudding ingredients into a jar and give a really good shake. Leave this in the fridge over night or for at least a few hours. If it’s a little thick the next day just drizzle some more milk in!
Next morning – whilst still half asleep- that’s an essential part of the recipe don’t skip it. Top with lots of ripe fresh figs. Strawberries work great too and some dried rose rose petals always look beautiful.
