  • ¾ cup Coconut cream

  • ¾ cup frozen strawberries

METHOD
  • Soak ¼ cup chia seeds in ½ cup water,  ¼ cup vegan milk & 1 tsp coconut nectar/syrup (or your choice of sweetness). Either do it the night before or leave until they are swollen & absorbed all the water.
  • Mix 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice with ¾ cup coconut cream and allow to curdle to form “yogurt”.
  • Place 3/4 cup frozen strawberries with ¼ cup nectar (or any sugar or syrup of choice) in a small pot on low heat and allow to simmer until blended together. This can be done the day before & can be made in bulk and stored in the bridge or even frozen. It really shouldn’t take more than 5min of simmering, your not making jam 😉 If it seems a little thick add some water, 1 tbsp at a time.
  • Spoon in the different layers, (chia, coconut flour, berry compote & sliced banana) until it fills the jar & enjoy!!!
  • Top with walnuts or your nut of choice.
