Lunch Idea - Lime & Coconut Chia Puddings with Pesto & Halloumi Burgers

Wondering what to pack in our two compartment stainless steel lunch box? We've got you covered! I think this lunch makes the ultimate "Mum lunch idea" (who wants to waste money buying your lunch at work? And let's face it, the options aren't always the healthiest either). This is also a perfect for lunch teens and teens who are little more adventurous.


Lime and Coconut Chia Puddings (serves 1)



2 Tbs chia seeds

1/2 cup light coconut milk

1 tsp lime zest

Juice of 1/2 small lime

2 tsp maple syrup



This can be made directly into your two compartment lunch box. Add the chia seeds, coconut milk, maple syrup, lime zest and juice and mix to combine. Leave in the fridge for 2 hours to set or overnight. 


Pest Halloumi Burgers


Brioche bun

1 Tbs pesto (store bought or try my nut free pesto for school recipe )

handful baby spinach

3- 4 slices of halloumi, grilled

Tip - Did you know you can use a sandwich press to grill your halloumi? No messy frying pans required. Assemble the burger. This can be enjoyed hot or cold.
