Avocado and Chia Seed Slice

How about this for a wild flavour combination! The creaminess and goodness of natural avocado with the highly nutritious and texture laden chia seeds. A raw and frozen, high healthy fat snack with a natural sugar kick of raw honey. So simple to make in the food processor and completely made of Whole Foods and completely gluten & dairy free.

I processed a few of the ingredients and then added some more. This will depend on the power of your food processor.

The coconut oil can be added as a liquid which will help it blend quicker.

Slice into pieces using a sharp knife.

Return the slice to the freezer and have as desired. The whole process is quick and having these snacks in the freezer is so handy.

A food processor is a wonderful resource to have in a Paleo kitchen.

I hope you enjoy this raw treat. Eat it mindfully and share the recipe with a friend so that we can spread the wellness message.
