Laureen Uy swears by soaked chia seeds for breakfast - she says it's a good diet food that still gives her enough energy for the gym. For Valentine's Day, we thought we'd add a twist: chocolate hazelnut milk. Think soy milk, but toastier, and with a chocolatey finish - perfect for serving your mate a sexy breakfast in bed. That is, if he's just as into weight-watching as you are.

YOU'LL NEED:

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1/2 cup Chocolate Hazelnut Milk (from Healthy Options)

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon muscovado sugar

A pinch of salt

For the fruit topping:

2-3 strawberries 

half a banana

1/2 teaspoon muscovado sugar

HOW TO DO IT:

1. Mix chia, chocolate hazelnut milk & vanilla extract in a jar and mix well.

2. Cover and refrigerate overnight or an hour before.

3. When ready to serve, transfer chia pudding into a glass or bowl and mix in 1/2 tsp sugar & salt.

4. Top with fruits.

To make the fruit topping:

1. Chop strawberries and bananas into bite sized pieces. (I usually slice them into cubes.)

2. In a bowl, mix together the strawberries, bananas & muscovado sugar.

3. Let it marinate for a good 10 minutes.

Note: If you can't find chocolate hazelnut milk, you can use almond milk and add in 1/2 teaspoon of cacao powder.
