Chia Coconut Mocha Energy Gel

Put your extra brewed coffee to good use with this delicious, energy boosting trifecta of coffee, chocolate and coconut. Quick and easy energy gel for on the go. Each serving has approx 64mg caffeine (the same as a whole cup of coffee!)
Course Drinks, Snack
Servings 1
Prep Time 5 minutes
Soak Time 15 minutes


  • ¼ cup brewed coffee (hot or cold; hot works faster)
  • ½ tsp instant coffee or finely ground coffee beans - see notes
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • tsp shredded coconut
  • ½ tsp cocoa powder
  • ¾ tsp sugar, honey, or agave syrup


  • 1. Combine instant coffee (or grounds), sugar/sweetener of choice, cocoa and coconut in a bowl. Pour in brewed coffee. Stir until sugar/sweetener has dissolved.
  • 2. Add chia seeds. Stir and let sit for at least 15 minutes (a gelatinous mixture will form).


  • Using fine coffee grounds results in a bolder, more bitter coffee taste…but has a slight grainy texture... BUT it has more caffeine. Pick your battles I guess. 
  • You can make more than 1 serving at once: each serving is 1/4 cup/2 oz. of finished gel. 
  • I like to pack single servings in 2 oz. GoToobs. Perfect size, packable and has a wide mouth/easy to fill. 
  • Store gel in the fridge for up to 1 week.
