Chia seeds (salvia hispanica) are the highest plant based source of Omega 3 and are very high in fiber, protein and iron. These tiny seeds can be black, grey or white and were originally cultivated during pre-Colombian times by the Aztec peoples of Mexico and Guatemala. Chia Seeds can easily be consumed raw, and this recipe would make a perfect sweet treat for any vegetarians or vegans (just make sure you substitute the honey for maple syrup). This Chocolate Chia Surprise ends up tasting exactly like chocolate custard and is also super healthy for you.

Allow the mixture to sit in the fridge for 45 minutes, so that the chia seeds can expand. They will absorb the liquid and become quite gelatinous.
