A delicious homemade option to the often expensive (around $4 a pop) chia seed drink that you'll find at any Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, etc. If you're not familiar with the drink...it's a thick, jelly-like texture that's known to be one of the most filling and appropriate substitutes for water.
It is loaded with antioxidants and has more potassium than bananas, more omega-3's than salmon and more calcium than milk. It is known to hold you over for hours, as it contains and combines the natural sugars and fat with the protein in the seeds.
Chia Seed to Water ratio (1/3 cup chia seed : 3 cups of water)
*I stuck with this ratio and made 3 cups - which evens out to 2-3 servings.
Your choice of 1 lemon, 1 lime OR one of each
3-4 spoonfuls of organic sugar cane
Refrigerate and let sit overnight. If it is still lacking the taste you're looking for, go ahead and add 1 cup of the chia seed gel to 1 cup of a juice of your choice.
