  • 1 tsp chia seeds – packed with omega 3 for gut health
  • 10 rehydrated golden berries – for a vitamin C boost

1 Blend the baobab and yoghurt in a small bowl

2 Drizzle the raw honey over the top

3 Sprinkle the bee pollen, golden berries and chia seeds

*Why not try buying raw honey from a local bee keeper or farmers market? Unless it says ‘raw’, it’s been pasteurised which can destroy the some of the health giving properties of honey.
