Ingredients: 4 tbsps. of chia seeds, 1 cup of water, coconut milk, or nut based milk, 1 tsp. of vanilla, 1 tsp of honey (local or raw are best), a dash of kosher or sea salt.

Benefits of Chia Seeds:

Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
