HOMEMADE RASPBERRY FLAVOURED YOGURT WITH CHIA SEEDS
For the compote:
200grams fresh or frozen berries
If using homemade yogurt, make sure it’s thick and rid of most of its whey. Hang the yogurt in cheesecloth/muslin for a few hours if necessary.
Soak the dates in ½ cup of hot water for 15 minutes. Add dates and the water to a blender and blend to a smooth purée. Set aside.
For the compote: add frozen (no thawing necessary) or fresh berries to a saucepan over medium heat. Break them down with a spatula until just cooked, about 5-7 minutes.
Stir in the date purée, lemon juice and chia seeds if using and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly. Once cooled, refrigerate until ready to use. Stays good refrigerated for about a week.
To serve, spoon the compote over the yogurt and eat!
