  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or scraped vanilla beans if you are feeling fancy
  • Homemade lemon curd chopped walnuts and unsweetened desiccated coconut for serving


  • In a large bowl, mix together the almond milk, yoghurt, chia seeds, lemon zest and juice and the maple syrup. Whisk well to combine, ensuring there are no large clumps
