CHOCOLATE CHIA PUDDING with cherry compote & coconut yoghurt
I have brought some of my favourite foods together for this one but have maintained the healthy theme. Chocolate combined with cherry & coconut yoghurt is a brilliant burst of flavours & texture & that’s what I love about it. Nothing stopping you from enjoying this as a breakfast meal & also as a dessert.
