I have to admit, when I opened the fridge this morning my Chia Fresca looked like a science experiment gone wrong. But looks can be deceiving and it tasted great.
Lemon water is a great way to kick start digestion and is alkalinizing. This is a great drink to sip on between meals as the fibre can help you feel fuller longer. Chia seeds are rich in fibre, protein, omega 3 fatty acids and potassium. So this is also a great option to rehydrate after hot yoga or an intense workout. Lots and lots of health benefits and very simply to throw together.
- 1 1/2 cups of cold water
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 teaspoons maple syrup
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- Mix all the ingredients together in a mason jar and let cool in fridge for minimum 2-3 hours.
- Add a slice of lemon or lime and/or a spring of mint for some added colour and flavour.
