LOCKDOWN WITH A CHEF: Cherry Blossom Chia Pots

Cherry blossom chia with cherry coconut yoghurt and pear compote. Trent has shared a simple three-layer overnight chia pudding recipe for us to try out at home during lockdown. The best part about this morning dish is that the fruit / flavour can be substituted depending on preferences and whats in season. Let us know if you make these cherry blossom chi pots at home!
