Cooking Instructions

For the Bounty Bar oat pudding

1. To make the oats, shake the coconut cream and reserve 80 g. Chill until the next day until just before serving. Place the remaining coconut cream in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate, and stir to combine. Cover and chill overnight.

2. The next day, divide between 4 glasses. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second blasts, then add the reserved coconut cream and stir.

3. Divide the topping between the glasses and return to the fridge for 30 minutes. Serve when the chocolate has set.

For the Strawberries-and-cream oat pudding

1. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Cover and chill overnight. The next day, divide between 4 glasses.

2. To make the topping, place the strawberries in a saucepan. Add the water and lemon juice and cook over a medium heat until just softened and glossy. Allow to cool slightly.

3. Spoon dollops of whipped cream onto the puddings and top with the strawberries and their pan juices. Serve immediately.
