Tonic herbs, superfoods, and the healthiest brain-fueling fats combine for delicious slow burning energy to power you for hours and hours…
In a cup, mix:
1 cup of unsweetened almond or coconut milk
4 tablespoons chia seeds
Stir well and make sure that the chia doesn’t clump. Let sit for 2-3 minutes until it forms a thick gelatinous texture and then pour into the blender. Secret trick- instead of stirring them by hand, put them both in your VitaMix and run it on the lowest speed setting for 60 seconds.
Into the blender add:
1 tablespoon lucuma
1 tablespoon mesquite
1 teaspoon astragalus extract powder
½ teaspoon chaga extract powder
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
2 tablespoons hemp protein + fiber
½ teaspoon vanilla powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon Ancient Organics ghee (optional for non-vegans)
20 drops Omica vanilla stevia (If you like your treats really sweet, go for 25 drops, if you like your treats not very sweet, go for 15 drops.)
For a cold pudding, add 2 ice cubes and blend on high for about 30 seconds until smooth.
For a warm pudding, blend on high for about 90 seconds until warm. But be careful not to let it get too hot or you risk losing some of the benefit of the Omega-3s from the chia and hemp.
It’s really thick, so you will most likely need to use a plunger/tamper to keep it going.
There are many options for toppings… usually bee pollen is my favorite, but I didn’t have any left, so I went for 1 tablespoon of goldenberries/incan berries. They are so tart! One thing many people don't realize is that golden berries contain adaptogentic withanolides that another favorite herb, ashwagandha, is so famous for. Other great topping options are cacao nibs, goji berries, chocolate, or vanilla bean powder.
