Chia-Up Pots Recipe


4 pots


2 small ripe bananas

300ml shop-bought or homemade unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk

1tsp vanilla extract


1. Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork. Stir in the milk, then add the chia seeds and vanilla, combining well.

2. Divide the mixture between 4 small bowls, glasses or ramekins, filling to about halfway.

  • Chopped strawberries, passion fruit, kiwifruit and orange zest
  • Chopped mango, strawberries, kiwifruit and mint leaves
  • Apple sauce
  • Fresh blueberries and granola
  • Raspberries and mint leaves
  • Sliced banana and chopped pecans
