Serves 4


granadilla yoghurt with chia pods in a dessert glass

80 ml (1/3 cup) chia seeds

500 ml (2 cups) coconut milk

15 ml (1 Tbsp) honey

10 ml (2 tsp) vanilla paste

250 ml (1 cup) Vital Medium Fat Smooth Granadilla Yoghurt

80 ml (1/3 cup) granadilla pulp

Fresh gooseberries, to garnish

Fresh mint, to garnish

Coconut flakes, toasted, to garnish


Place the chia seeds, coconut milk and honey in a small saucepan and heat for about 5 minutes on a medium heat while stirring. You can skip the heating step, but then the chia seeds will take longer to absorb all the liquid. Stir well to avoid any lumps from forming. Set aside and allow to cool.

Once cooled, add the vanilla paste and yoghurt to the chia mixture and mix well. Add 60 ml (1/4 cup) of the granadilla pulp and mix well. Place the chia mixture in glass jars and place in the fridge to set for an hour or two.

Garnish the chia pods with the remainder of the granadilla pulp, fresh gooseberries, fresh mint and toasted coconut flakes.
