Chia & Apple Bircher With Blackcurrant Compote
For the blackcurrant compote
150g British blackcurrants
Juice from 1 clementine (sub for 50ml orange juice)
60g golden caster sugar
Small pinch sea salt (⅛ tsp)
For the bircher (per person)
3 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp water (around 90-100ml)
3 tbsp plant based yogurt (Nush is a british and organic brand)
1 small apple grated
½ tsp cinnamon (optional)
To make the compote, add all of the ingredients into a small pot and bring to a simmer for around 5 minutes.
Add the couli to a food processor or grind in a pestle and mortar to make a smooth texture (we saved 2-3 blackcurrants to top each chia bircher).
To make the chia bircher simply pour the chia seeds and water into the glass / bowl and leave to thicken for around 5 minutes before adding in the yogurt, cinnamon and grated apple and mix together.
Add the blackcurrant compote on top (hot or cold works) with a few blackcurrants on top to garnish.
