Chia Fresca

 23 Jul 2020

 Chia Seeds come from the Salvia Hispanica plant grown in Mexico and South America. It is a favourite traditional drink in which the seeds are mixed into lime or lemon juice with added sweetener.

Chia Fresca


  • 250ml water or coconut water
  • 1 – 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice, or to taste
  • Sweetener, to taste (I like 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, stevia, agave nectar)



Leave for 30 minutes / few hours / overnight

Chia Seeds will soften and absorb fluid turning into a gel like substance

I added a splash of ACV (apple cider vinegar) to mine , there are also lots of versions to make with fruits and juices for taste!
