A delicious baked topping

Elevate your chia pudding by adding a delightful twist of baked strawberries and rhubarb. This combination of sweetness from strawberries and tanginess from rhubarb creates a burst of flavour and fits perfectly with the pudding. When baked, the strawberries and rhubarb soften and release their natural juices, resulting in a tender and luscious texture. The heat from the oven enhances their natural sweetness, making them even more irresistible.

A rich, nutty crunch on top

To add a scrumptious final touch to the velvety chia pudding, the caramelised hazelnuts provide a delightful burst of flavour and a satisfying crunch. As the nuts roast, their natural nuttiness is enhanced, while the vinegar creates a tangy and subtly sweet glaze infusing each bite. The result is an irresistible fusion of textures and flavours that harmonise flawlessly with the creamy pudding and sweet, tender topping.
