We like to use small shot glasses for these pretty desserts, they are great when you are craving something sweet but you don’t want to over indulge. They are easy to whip up and are great for a healthy breakfast or a pudding at lunchtime or for dinner parties. 

Ingredients

Serves 6

300g one type of ripe berry or a mixture of ripe berries such as raspberries, loganberries, strawberries or blueberries2 tablespoons of chia seeds300g natural thick whole cow’s, goat’s or whole natural yoghurt ¼ teaspoon vanilla powder or extract or seeds from a vanilla pod60g mixed seedsA small handful of walnuts, roughly chopped

Method

  • Blend 200g of the berries (reserving the rest for decoration) and seeds together with together in a Vitamix, Nutribullet or other blender for a couple of minutes. If you use white chia seeds they won’t show in the puree but black chia work the same magic. They will thicken the puree to a jammy consistency after a couple of minutes.   
  • Put a dollop of the puree  in the bottom of each small glass and top with a layer of yoghurt. Follow with another layer of jam and yoghurt. 
  • Top each one with the seeds and nuts and a few whole berries.  Eat straight away or store for up to a day in the fridge.
