Mexican Chia Seed Lime Water


  • 6 cups water
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  1. Mix water with lime juice in a large bowl. Sweeten to taste with agave nectar, starting with 2 tablespoons and adding more until you find it just sweet enough.
  2. Stir chia seeds into the water.
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Mealthy tip:

If in a rush, wait 10 minutes for the chia seeds to absorb water, add ice cubes, and serve. Chia seeds are nutrient powerhouses, so they are a sneaky way to add essential fatty acids to your water!

Love the flavor, but the texture . . . let's just say I'm certain some of my friends from Mexico would have had a good laugh watching me drink this. Going to stick to my limeade, I think!

This drink was very, very interesting. I had some chia seeds on hand from my stint with trying out healthy alternative recipes- that didn't last very long for me. Gave this drink a shot and I was pleasantly surprised. Texture would take some getting used to, but overall a decent drink.
