It’s been a while since I’ve used Chia seeds – I was obsessed by the little protein miracles a while ago. I had a kitchen tidy up last week and discovered a large stash so I’ve started to use them in everything again. Along with my chia discovery was a large packet of cacao powder and half an orange looking sad in the fridge – and so the chocolate pot was envisaged. Along with the yoghurt it packs a good protein punch too.
Brilliant to make the night before to let the chia seeds do their magic – and what could be nicer than a chocolate breakfast ready to eat as soon as you open the fridge.
Sprinkle some nuts, seeds and coconut on top and it’s ready to enjoy.
Chocolate power pot
- Juice of half an orange
- 1 and 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon cacoa powder (or cocoa powder)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 100ml soya yoghurt
Mix all the ingredients together and put in the fridge overnight.
Choose your sprinkles – nuts, seeds, coconut or even granola would be great.
