Chia Fresca

Chia FrescaAlso known as Mexican Lemonade, Chia Fresca is simply lemon water with chia seeds and sweetener. This version is sugar-free and only ever so lightly sweetened with liquid stevia or maple syrup. Super refreshing, you can sip this all day long, keep hydrated and gain the nutritional benefits of the chia seeds. Winning.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chia gel or seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia or 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

Simply combine all ingredients, shake, and you’re done. The seeds will settle to the bottle of the container. Shake intermittently if you want to keep the seeds in suspension. Just like a summer snow globe…
