Chia seeds are the star of the show.  Two tablespoons of this food of the ancient Aztec people packs in 5 grams of omega 3 fatty acids and 11 grams of fiber.  They also contain essential minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup chia seeds – dry
  • 16 oz coconut milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup mini dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup raw almond slivers
  • Stevia or raw honey to taste

coconut milkDirections:

Stir all ingredients together in a container with a tight sealing lid.  Be sure to mix well.  Allow to sit in your refrigerator for 2-4 hours or overnight.  As the mixture sits, the chia seeds will absorb water from the coconut milk forming a gel that will thicken the mixture.
