Chia Fresca

I have been a vegetarian most of my life, and have been enjoying the health benefits of chia seeds for years. As a vegetarian, I like whole foods sources of nutrition, and chia seeds have antioxidants, minerals, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. The use of chia seeds for nutrition dates back thousands of years and is considered a superfood.

This drink is wonderful for both your health and hydration, and is an easy way to enjoy the benefits of chia seeds.


~ 2 cups water
~ 1 tablespoon chia seeds
~ 1/2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
~ optional: sweetener, to taste


Combine ingredients in a glass or jar.

You’ll want to mix the ingredients frequently until the chia seeds have absorbed enough liquid.

I like to use a mason jar with a lid so you can shake it.

The chia seeds will naturally clump together if not stirred.

    Now you have me thinking I drink lots of water because my doctor advised me to but now thinking about trying this as well. Sounds real interesting and I am wondering if the taste is that much different???

    I’ve never had this chia seed drink before. I have had some Mexican lemonade type drink that had chia seeds. It was delicious.

    I am glad to learn this new chia seed drink recipe. Years ago, I would only mix chia seeds with water and drink the mixture after a few minutes. After reading this recipe that includes lemon/lime juice and sweetener, I realize there are more enjoyable ways to consume chia seeds. I look forward to trying out this tastier chia seed beverage.
