Mexican Chia Seed Lime Water
- 6 cups water
- 4 limes, juiced
- 2 tablespoons agave nectar, or more to taste
- 1 tablespoon chia seed
- 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.
- Stir chia seeds into the water.
- Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
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!

I used coconut water - LOVE. will make this again. kind of like a healthy tapioca!
Randall Hauk says:
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!
Aja A says:
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.
