For the pudding

  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 tbsp dairy free milk

For the cherry sauce

  • 1 handful fresh cherries
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp water

For the crunchy base

  • 3 rich tea biscuits


For the pudding

  • To a mixing bowl add dairy free milk of your choice, chia seeds, and sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Cover the mixture and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. The chia pudding should be thick and creamy. If it is not, add more chia seeds, stir, and refrigerate for until it thickens up.

For the cherry compote

  • Place all the ingredients into a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring gently, until the mixture comes to a low boil. Continue to stir and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.


  • Crush the rich tea biscuits and place at the bottom of a small jar or glass and press firmly.
  • Scoop the chia pudding on top of the biscuit base, then pour the cherry compote on top. Serve immediately (you can refrigerate it once assembled but please note that the biscuit base will eventually go soggy).
