  • 1/3 cup coconut milk 80ml (thick - I use culinary coconut milk)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 oz soft dates 85g (Medjool best), pitted weight
  • 3 tbsp water approx
  • 1/2 tbsp toasted coconut approx, to serve


  • Blend together the coconut milk and banana in a food processor or blender. Add the chia seeds and pulse once or twice to mix then tip into a dish. Cover and chill for 20min to allow seeds to swell and soften. You can leave overnight, but it will become a little more grey.
  • If the dates are not really soft, soak in boiling water for 10min or so first. Pulse the dates in a food processor so they become small chunks. Add some water, a tablespoon at a time so that it comes together as a smooth puree. The exact amount will depend on your dates but you want a spoonable mixture but not too runny. Note - this will give you enough for around 2-3 chia puddings or use the rest for something else (also good on toast, with oatmeal and more).
  • Once the chia have soaked, layer up the chia pudding with the date puree and top with a little toasted coconut.
