Hawke's Bay Apricot Edition. Here for summer (until we run out).


Recipe by Leno of the Crazy Cucumber Blog


  • 600ml almond milk (or try using Vigour Vitality nut butter mylk)
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp chia seeds (get the best organic seeds around for $12kg here)
  • 2-3 tbsp rice syrup, agave, coconut nectar or maple syrup
  • 250g strawberries, washed and drained + 2 finely sliced berries for garnish
  • fresh mint or edible flowers for garnish.


  • Mix chia seeds with almond milk, vanilla and sweetener. Soak for 2-3 hours or overnight. (I like to soak it overnight and mix with fruits in the morning just before serving).
  • Mix the strawberries in the blender until smooth.
  • Use a glass or jar. For strawberry decor hold strawberry slices on the inner surface of the jar. It's easier than it sounds - if it's not holding just use a drop of maple syrup.
