Ingredients

  • Serves 4100g chia seeds

Method

This is very quick to prepare. Brew the tea bags in the boiling water until it’s tepid, then remove them. Meanwhile, in a blender, blitz the dates/prunes along with the tahini. Then blend this mixure with the tea and soak the chia seeds in it for 30 minutes, or overnight. To serve, sweeten with a little honey, or stevia or maple syrup, and top with plenty of blueberries.
