Chia fresca – A natural energy drink
The Mexicans have brewed up their own version of lemonad, called chia fresca, for centuries
Simply add one tablespoon of chia seed to one glass of water (2,5 dl), then sweeten with a teaspoon of agave nectar or stevia.
(I like to add a bit of fresh lemon juice too)
Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the seeds completely swell and absorb the liquid.
A slice or wedge of lemon/lime or a few mint/lemon balm leaves can be added on top.
You can also add ice to it to chill it, or keep it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
