Pum’s favourite recipes…Chai Butternut for Breakfast

This week I tried another recipe from ‘The Art of Eating Well’ by Hemsley and Hemsley.  As soon as I read the title “Chia Chai Butternut Breakfast Pudding” I knew this would be right up my street.

You can check out the full recipe at the link here (but I thoroughly recommend purchasing the book, it’s so good!):  http://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/recipes/chia-chai-butternut-breakfast-pudding

Hemsley and Hemsley’s Chia Chai Butternut Breakfast Pudding (Pum’s version)

  1. 1 large butternut squash
  2. 2 chai teabags
  3. 2 tbsp. chia seeds (I used black because that’s what I had but they recommend white as it maintains the orange colour from the butternut squash much better)
  4. 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  5. 1 tbsp. honey
  6. Greek yoghurt
  7. Cashew butter (or your favourite nut butter)
What Pum did
  1. Roast the butternut squash in the oven for 40–50 minutes until completely cooked.  Scoop out the flesh and mash up.
  2. Add 350 ml water to the mashed squash and mix in along with the coconut oil and the contents of the tea bags and simmer over a low heat.
  3. Take off the heat and stir in the chia seeds and honey.  Leave for 30 mins to thicken up.
  4. Mix some greek yoghurt and a couple tsp. of cashew butter well.  Layer with the chai butternut and enjoy!

This was seriously yummy and I really looked forward to having this for my breakfast.  You could easily make it a touch sweeter and enjoy for dessert too!
