Drink Chia?

Recently I had been hearing a lot of hype about the Mamma Chia drinks.  I haven’t come across one yet, or else I probably would have bought one to try.  I did hear that they are really good, but $$$ expensive.



Today I decided I was going to try my hand at making my own chia drink.  My first attempt was okay – but a little too watered down.  I tried again, and perfecto!

I am very sensitive to certain slimey textures – so I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this gelatious drink, but it turns out that it isn’t slimey, and I quite enjoyed it!



Here’s how you can make your own chia drink.

  • In a glass add 1/2 cup of warm water.  
  • Stir in 2 Tbsp of chia.  I used a small whisk to really work the chia into the water.  
  • Once it was starting to gel a bit, I sat it in the fridge over night.
  • The next day, it will be quite thick. 
  • Add 1 cup of 100% natural organic juice.  Make sure it’s 100% juice. 
  • Stir it all together, and enjoy! 
I used lemonade for my juice, but you can use any type.  If you use a red juice, it turns out really pretty. 

Why do you want to eat chia? 

It has anti-inflammatory properties
It’s a perfect vegan protein
It will give you energy – the word “chia” means strength
It has even more antioxidants than blueberries! 


Let me know if you try it! 

Naturally,
Jenna
