Raspberry Lemonade Chia Drink

Lately I’ve been into superfood ingredients like chia, flax seed and quinoa. As a busy mom we have to find a balance between healthy foods and convenience that works for us. I have found that adding these “superfoods” into meals and snacks is such an easy way to bring more omega-3’s, fiber, antioxidants and protein into our family’s diet.

I’ve had the expensive store-bought Chia drinks, but these are easy enough to make at home. Chia are seeds, but when they are left to soak, they create a gel like substance. The texture might take some getting used to!

Homemade Raspberry Lemonade Chia Drink. Super easy and healthy!

Homemade Raspberry Lemonade Chia Drink

2 cups coconut water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup raspberry juice (or 1 cup fresh raspberries, muddled or blended)
2-3 Tbls honey
4 Tbls Chia seeds

Mix all of the ingredients in a pitcher. Let sit 30 minutes until the seeds form a gel consistency. Shake or stir before serving.

    Did not have Coconut water – so used Coconut Oil (would drink some, anyway) and water, added an apple, few blueberries and tea spoon of spirulina powder and blended with ice. THAT actually tasted quite pleasant …

  2. This is everything to me for summer! I cannot wait to make this and enjoy out on the patio soaking up some sun!

  3. I also found this through Pinterest. Looks delicious, but I was wondering if I could substitute anything for cococnut water. Thanks.

  4. Found this through pinterest.com and have to try it!! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. This is a beautiful looking drink. I wonder how it would be in the blender–do the seeds puree smooth? I may have to try it.

Mix ingredients in a pitcher, let sit 30 minutes and enjoy. A summer favorite. In a hurry? I just drink it as soon as I mix them together, no need to wait until it forms into a gelatinous mixture—i dont like that texture anyway!. Chug, chug, chug!
