Chia Fresca

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

Ingredients

• 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)

 

Tips Leave for 30 minutes / few hours / overnight

Chia Seeds soften and absorb fluid

I add a splash of ACV (apple cider vinegar) to mine
