Matcha and cacao cake with goji berries

Following on from my last recipe, today I suggest another recipe including matcha (powdered green tea) as its main ingredient.

It also includes other beneficial ingredients (coconut oil, agave nectar, cacao, chia seeds, oats, nuts) whose properties I will discuss in coming posts.

Although you need to prepare this dessert in advance, the actual time in the kitchen is minimum; and the results, spectacular.
A dessert rich in textures, flavours and aesthetics.

Preparation time: 10 min. Cooking time: no time needed. Ready in: 24 hours
