For the chia pudding
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk canned, either light of full fat
- 1/2 cup soy yoghurt or any vegan yoghurt of choice
- 1 medium banana mashed
For the stovetop apples
- 1 large apple (around 200g), peeled and chopped
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch
- 2 tbsp water
To make the chia pudding
In a bowl or jar, stir together the chia seeds, coconut milk, soy yoghurt and banana. Leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
To make the stovetop apples
Add the apple, maple syrup and cinnamon to a non-stick saucepan with a splash of water. Cook over a low heat for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, stir together the water and the cornstarch in a small bowl.
Add the cornstarch mixture to the apples, cooking for a further 2-3 minutes to allow it to thicken. Serve immediately over the chia pudding.
