Chocolate Chia Breakfast Yumminess with Coconut and Blueberries

OK, this is so delicious.  I have only just realized how amazing Chia Seeds are and I can't believe it took me so long.  I have put them in smoothies before, but finding out I could use them like this has changed everything!  This can be eaten as a snack or a breakfast food, or any time really.  In fact I'm eating it right now as I write this.  So go for it!  This one is great for your health and can give you a nice sweet experience without using any sugar.
