What's Chia Seed Anyway?
Chia seeds are known to be the "runner" food of the Aztecs. They are packed with protein. This recipe features chia seeds and is a raw vegan pudding that is great brain food. We often make it the night before a school exam. We eat it chilled in the morning for breakfast.

2 tbsp raw cacoa powder
4 tbsp raw honey
8 tbsp chia seeds (black)
1 medium-sized avocado
2 tbsp organic coconut oil
2 cups filtered water

Put chia seeds in a small bowl with filtered water stir for three to five minutes until they become gelatinous (like Jello). In a food processor, add chia seed and water mixture, honey, avocado, cacoa powder, and coconut oil. Process for 3 minutes, stoping to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Adjust honey and cacoa powder to taste. Pour into individual serving bowls and chill (not you, the pudding). Serve cold and enjoy!
