¼ cup dried coconut (shredded and unsweetened)

1 cup water

¼ cup raw cashews (soaked 1 hour, drained).

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Chia Facts:

Chia, officially named salvia hispanica is in the mint family.  It is the best known source of omega three fatty acids.  The Aztec Indians primary crop was corn.  Chia seeds were their second most used food item.  Mexico’s Taramahara Indians are known for the great endurance, often running a hundred miles as a group.  Chia and water are the only foods they take on these runs.

Seven tablespoons of chia seeds are equal to 7 grams of fiber.
