Recipes Using Chia Seeds
Chia seeds can soak up to 12 times their weight in water, so eating them dry can potentially leave you dehydrated and with chia seeds stuck in your teeth. A better option is to create a chia gel that you can then add to smoothies, salad dressings, soups, dips, cereals, puddings or any food you desire to upgrade with added nutrition.
The basic formula is 1/3 Cup Chia Seeds to 2 Cups Water (or other liquid). Stir the chia seeds into the liquid well, stir again in about 10 minutes. The longer the chia seeds sit in the liquid, the more gelatenous they will be.
Store your Chia Gel in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
After creating chia gel overnight, stir the gel well and place 1 Cup of it in a Vita-Mix or other high powered blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Pour mixture back in bowl with remaining chia gel and stir well. Keep refrigerated. Enjoy!

Laura's Bliss Kisses
Stir the dry ingredients together in a bowl. If you are including any of the optional ingredients, add them in now too. If you decide to add any of the powdered greens, I suggest you also add the orange essential oil or cinnamon to cover any potential "green flavor".
Add the Coconut Oil and Agave Nectar and stir. It works best and is more fun to get your hands into the mix now and really mush all the ingredients together so that the oil and agave bind the dry ingredients well.
Create small teaspoon-size drops of the mixture and place them on wax paper. You can see pictures of the size and yummy messiness. You will get about 10 little bliss kisses per recipe. Freeze your bliss kisses for best taste and longevity, though you may find that after licking your fingers you desire to eat them all up quickly.
You can also use Carob in your bliss kisses to make a sweeter kiss. Try using half Cacao and half Carob or substituting Carob for the Tocotrienols in the recipe.
For an extra-creamy and more truffle-like bliss kiss that can sit out at room temperature, substitute Cacao Butter for the Coconut Oil. Mmmmmm. Enjoy!
