Cacao and Berry Pudding

A very simple yet incredibly moreish dessert that will definitely lift your spirits!

You will need:

(Serves 4)

6 gluten-free oatcakes

4 heaped tbsp raw cacao powder

200 ml oat or hemp milk

1 tbsp  xylitol

handful blueberries and raspberries

pine nuts

chia seeds

Break oatcakes up and divide them between four glass jars. Place some blueberries on top of the oatcakes. Add 4 tablespoons of raw cacao powder and 1 tablespoon of palmyra jaggery or xylitol in a cup. Heat 200 ml of milk up, pour it over the powder and stir well. Add more cacao or milk if needed to create a thick consistency. Then pour it in the jars. Add some pine nuts and sprinkle some chia seeds.
