Mint Choc Chia Pudding
1tbsp chia seeds
1tsp raw cacao powder
1tsp Maca root powder
Small handful of fresh mint
Sprinkle of desiccated coconut for the top
A little coconut water, or filtered water
You will also need a NutriBullet or similar blender
- Add the banana, cacao, maca and mint to the blender and blend for about 30 seconds (if the mixture is too thick to blend add a small dash of coconut water, or water).
- Then add the chia seeds to the mixture and stir well. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid and swell up. The longer you leave the mixture the thicker it will become.
