Blooming Bakery #5 Lykke Li's Chia Pudding Recipe

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm an avid reader of Rookie Mag. I love everything about this online magazine, from the platform it gives young women to connect with each other, to their kooky monthly themes and even kookier (and MAGNIFICENT) founder Tavi Gevinson. There's something so refreshing about their unconventional and often raw posts, which tend to be written by young budding writers like myself. I also love how Rookie is so dreamily cosmic yet attainable at the same time. I wish, hope and pray to one day be a contributor!

Every now and then, Rookie delves into the brimming minds of a celebrity for their 'High 5' articles. Recently, I read singer-songwriter (and light of my life) Lykke Li's High 5 where she divulged her experimental Chia pudding recipe. Well, I had to give it a go and was not disappointed.

Simply mix almond milk with chia seeds, a dash of vanilla and if, like me, you want it a wee sweeter, add a teaspoon of agave nectar. Leave to set in the fridge overnight. Garnish in the morning with goji berries, walnuts, blueberries and chopped banana et voilĂ , breakfast is served! You'll be left with a scrumptious tapioca consistency and a no longer rumbly tumbly.

What's your go-to healthy snack?
