Chia pudding with quick raspberry basil compote

One of my all time favourite things about summer is raspberry season. When I was younger, I used to go raspberry picking each summer with my family at a farm near my country house. I would eat my weight in raspberries as I picked them and filled up my bucket. After picking, we’d always head back to the house, and make an assortment of delicious treats. (including pies and jams!)

I love chia pudding recipes for a quick and easy breakfast, snack, or treat. Though it’s not quite the season yet to go back and pick my own basket of raspberries on the farm, raspberry season is quickly approaching so I wanted to share this recipe for this chia pudding with quick raspberry basil compote. You can also use frozen raspberries in this recipe if you don’t have fresh ones available.
