Directions

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.
