Chia pots seem to have become a great instagram trend. So I thought I’d join on the bandwagon and create some of my own. I’ve made sure to use British raspberries, to reduce the food miles on this recipe, as well as supporting my local producers! I am so lucky to live in London and especially close to the famous Borough Market. The range of fruit and vegetables there is so amazing and the quality is great! Although it can be so much easier to pop down to the supermarket, it can be great to make the effort to support these smaller businesses that sell their own fruit, veg or dairy! It’s so lovely to create a relationship with the suppliers as well as reducing food miles and celebrating British produce! If you look on the packaging of ingredients in supermarket, it’s incredible to see that they are from all over the world, but actually going to smaller suppliers, you can even find out where exactly it’s made! I even found a company creating honey just down the road from me.. how amazing is that?
Now back to the chia pots, I’ve never really ventured into breakfast items, but seeing these on instagram, they looked so delicious, I had to give them a try! Surprisingly, they are incredibly easy to make and require not many ingredients, plus they are so diverse, you can change the flavours multiple times and let your creativity fly! I’ve added my famous granola recipe to this as it pairs so well with the chia pudding. My family and friends love my granola, so here is a gift to you! A homemade granola is so worth the extra effort, I’ve added lots of seeds and pistachios, as well as cranberries, sultanas and goji berries. Such a treat!!
