Chia & Apple Bircher

Chia & Apple Bircher

Spiralising fruit with the kids can be a lot of fun. They love to see how many noodles one piece can produce. Here we have used apple as the fruit accompaniment to a classic chia seed bircher. Apple oxidises and turns brown quickly, especially when there is so much surface area exposed. To prevent this, pop it into some acidulated water (filtered water with a squeeze of lemon juice). I like to use chia seeds instead of oats, as they are gentler on the digestive system and won’t leave you feeling bloated.
