In addition to providing nutrients, coconut milk contains lauric acid which is a medium-chain fatty acid that is easily absorbed and used by the body for energy. Coconut milk can help you lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure, and prevent heart attacks or a stroke. Coconut milk also promotes muscle recovery by helping to repair broken down tissue to grow back stronger.
Chia seeds are nutrient-dense and pack a punch of energy-boosting power. They also provide essential fatty acids alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid; mucin; strontium’ vitamins A, B, E and D; and minerals, including sulfur, iron, iodine, magnesium, manganese, niacin and thiamine; and they are a rich source of antioxidants. Chia seeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Add 1 can Organic Coconut Milk, 3 scoops Ultima Raspberry, Cherry Pomegranate or Grape flavor, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 cup of any mixture of fruit in a bowl. Mix together and let sit for 2 hours so chia seeds absorb fluid and fatten up. Pour into ice pop molds and freeze.
