I’ve been interested in trying chia pods, but haven’t been able to find them anywhere!  So, I ordered a case of them through the food co-op that I am a part of.  Good thing I like them because now I have a whole refrigerator full!  Made with only 3 ingredients and no added sugar, they make a great on-the-go snack especially since they are packaged with a cute little spoon!

And it doesn’t hurt that Kelly Slater sponsors the company as well 🙂  Check out his video here

While they taste awesome and are super healthy for you, they cost a lot…over $3.00 each!  So, at a fraction of the cost here is my chia pod recipe!

  • In a blender or food processor, blend together coconut milk, banana, cacao powder and vanilla. Pour mixture into a bowl.
