When we feel love, we allow our bodies to listen with love, eat with love and digest with love.
This bowl of deliciousness sounds like there’s a lot involved but it really is very easy given that you just throw it all in a bowl and eat. The best thing is that you can mix and match an ingredient if you don’t have it, don’t like it, have never heard of it or your body is simply saying that something doesn’t feel right about the goji berries today. Leave them out and add cacao nibs. And always think about fresh herbs and spices. They bring any meal alive, not to mention the health benefits.
Ingredients – serves 3-4
1 cup of chia seeds (swap for oats if you’d prefer)
1 cup of filtered water and/or coconut water
1 cup of kefir (I used goats milk kefir but you could use any milk of choice, kefir has wonderful benefits for gut health however)
1-2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla powder
½-1 tsp of ginger powder (can use freshly grated)
½-1 tsp of bee pollen
¼ cup of hemp seeds
Handful of goji berries
Handful of pumpkin seeds
Tbl of coconut oil
Handful of basil or mint
Chunks of apple, kiwifruit and zucchini
1 tsp of Shaktis Superfood Blend (or your green blend of choice)
A pinch of dried lavender (crumble between fingers and sprinkle on top)
Coconut yoghurt (or yoghurt of choice)
You can choose to prepare the whole pudding the night before or just soak the chia seeds and add the rest when you’re in the kitchen in the morning.
Night before. Place chia seeds in a bowl with water/coconut water and kefir of choice (or milk of choice) and combine well. At this point you can add spices, pollen, seeds, goji berries, coconut oil and basil/mint if you’d like (combine well if you do). Cover and refrigerate.
Remove bowl from fridge. Add spices, pollen, seeds, berries, coconut oil and basil/mint if you didn’t the night before. Combine. Transfer to serving bowl(s). Add chunks of apple, kiwifruit, zucchini, green powder of choice, a dollop of coconut yoghurt.
NB the coconut oil will become chunky but I love it like this!
