The finishing touch from the opening of Thrive Kitchen menu in Santa Monica, California. Contributed by Peggy Kotsopoulos(host of television show Peggy K’s Kitchen Cures on Veria Living TV, and author of Kitchen Cures) for Thrive Forward, which is all about a plant based diet, healthy living, and having fun. If you can't find coconut sugar, I would try substituting coconut, ground fine, with raw sugar. The computer doesn't recognize chia seed, so I put it in parenthises(sp?)
