Chia is a versatile, powerful little seed with outstanding health benefits. It is very high in calcium, and being high in fibre it keeps you feeling full for longer and is especially handy for regularity. It is also gluten, wheat and nut free.
40 g (1½ oz/¼ cup) chia seeds
375 ml (13 fl oz/1½ cups) coconut milk
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1–2 teaspoons rice malt syrup
To make the chocolate chia, place the chia seeds in a bowl with the coconut milk and whisk together with a fork. Add the cacao, lucuma and rice malt syrup and whisk well. Set in the fridge for up to 8 hours, or overnight, before serving. Add toppings of your choice if desired.
