Chocolate Protein Immunity Pudding

Ingredients Needed: 1/2 cup coconut milk 1 little chunk of cocoa butter 1 tsp coconut oil 3 tbsp chia seeds 1/2 cup cacao powder 1 tsp reishi mushroom 1 tsp chaga mushrooms 1 tbsp spirulina 1 handful of spinach 1 handful frozen strawberries 1 handful goji berries a very small pinch of raw vanilla Preparation: In mixer soak chia seeds with coconut milk for 30 minutes then add in the rest and blend. Sprinkle with cocoa nibs or bee pollen… IT IS YUMMY and so healthy. You can also make maca bars that Brendan Brazier put out as a recipe for Mother’s day.  Those are one of my favorite treats!  Raw cacao, maca, maple syrup, macadamia nuts, coconut….yummmmm.  They make a delicious (and good for you!) treat. You can make protein bars with raw cacao and hemp protein and a few other wonderful ingredients including coconut oil. There are so many raw goodies you can make with cacao that are really healthy.  The one feeling I think I can say that I consistently get when eating chocolate is “decadence”, frivolous and lovely indulgence of the sweetest and healthiest kind.  I make smoothies with cacao, coconut milk, banana, spinach and that
