One thing Club Quartine has taught me is I am glad I made the lifestyle change to live a more healthy lifestyle. Water and healthy snacks are what I will be brought to the next Club Quartine party and to the anticipated small gatherings to come. I want to share my healthy snacking treats that are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Lizi's Summer Fruit Trifle with a Gut-Friendly Twist!
At this point, what haven't I put Lizi's in? We have turned it into a trail mix, eaten as a cereal, a now Lizi's Summer Fruit Trifle with a Gut-Friendly Twist! GUT-FRIENDLY SUMMER FRUIT TRIFLE.
A fruit trifle is the perfect summer dish, and this version is excellent for your gut too. Packed full of fibre, this vegan trifle uses chia seeds (a nutritional powerhouse which is rich in omega-3 fats), summer fruits, coconut cream and Lizi's Digestive Health Granola which is full of good gut bacteria.
5 tbsp of chia seeds
300ml of water
4 kiwis, peeled and sliced
5 heaped tbsp of dairy-free yoghurt
75g of raspberries
150g of strawberries
250ml coconut cream*
A handful of blueberries
175g of Lizi's Digestive Health Granola
1. Add the chia seeds to a mixing bowl and stir in 300ml of water (if you're making this dish bigger or smaller, always stick to a ratio of 1:6 when it comes to chia seeds and water). Put the dish to one side to soak.
2. After ten minutes, the chia seeds will have absorbed the water to form a gel-like consistency (if the mixture is still a little dry, continue to add more water slowly).
3. Stir in 2 tablespoons of your coconut cream to your chia seeds. This will form the base of the trifle.
4. Pour chia seed mix into the base of the dish.
5. Slice your kiwis and layer over the chia seed mix.
6. Pour dairy-free yoghurt over the kiwi layer until covered.
7. Sprinkle over your raspberries and half of the Lizi's Digestive Health Granola
8. Spoon over your coconut cream to form the final layer of this trifle.
9. Garnish this layer with strawberries, granola and blueberries.
